My sister's birthday was last week and I couldn't find what I planned on getting her. I hate when that happens.
When she was here for Matt's graduation, she was telling me how she is wearing out the aprons I've made her so I decided to make her a new one.
Once when she visited, she had commented on one of my Christmas aprons, liking it because of it's simplicity...so I used it as a pattern and created her one like it.
It has a double pocket and is long enough she can use it to wipe her hands on, while keeping the top half covered while cooking bubbly stuff that splatters.
It is void of ruffles and ric rac and bobble trim and such, because she doesn't like a lot of foo-foo.
BUT....I couldn't help myself and added a touch of whimsy...a little quote tape from Alice in Wonderland.
It is probably the simplest apron I've ever made...but I know it will be used and enjoyed and that is what matters most.
