The Apron

Here I am wearing the apron.

You can barely see it, but there is a pocket right there. The print of the fabric is little strawberries with butterflies, birdies and worms. I thought it was real cute.

This is the top portion with a little bit of eyelet lace. You'll notice that I still need to do a lot of clipping of loose threads. The tie on top is just bias tape fastened with velcro. In the back, it is tied with some ribbon. I'm probably going to take that off and get some more bias tape to tie it. The ribbon is too big and bulky so it's hard to tie.

So for my first attempt at sewing an apron, I guess it's presentable.

Have a happy Saturday!
