I've been gone for awhile! I was sick for the first time in YEARS.....and that combined with college tours....yada yada....the list goes on. No one needs the gorey, boring details. The good news is that I feel better and so I thought I'd do a quick post. I'll do more this weekend....lots to catch up on!
Last week we had Seafood day at work. I had NOTHING to wear so decided on an apron. Someone had given me an odd shaped cut of this lobster fabric. I'd been saving it for years! I used a portion for the pocket and put it on a new tea towel. I used double ribbons for the waistband and ties. I whipped it up just in time for work....
Well, one of my partners in crime fell in love with it so I gave it to her at the end of the day. I still had a little more fabric at home so I knew I could make one for myself. I had some coordinating polka dot fabric in my stash and made this one over the weekend.
Side view of the pocket and sash:
It is a clothespin apron....one of my favorite styles. I also backed it so I can reverse it if I want.
I used every smidge of fabric I had left! In fact, I had to shave the size of the apron down by almost 2 inches....but that didn't hurt the look or functionality of the apron.
