Dontcha just love a quick project?!

Karen from Didyoumakethat held an Apronalong and I knew I just had to participate.  I have been meaning to make an apron from ages now and somehow just never got around to it.

This was the perfect opportunity to get organised for Christmas presents and this is my prototype.

I didn’t use a pattern as I had a pretty good idea in my head of what I wanted.  Basically the skirt is using the full width of the fabric with the bottom corners rounded off and then all edged in a contrast fabric.

Pockets – of course I wanted two as my personality type likes balance and symmetry!

The top is a trapezium shape (remember them from school?) and then edged in the obligatory ricrac that I feel all aprons simply must have. I really wanted red ricrac but my local store didn’t have any so I had to settle with blue, but I like the result.

Sorry, no pictures of me in this. Reason – I finished it early this morning before I had a shower or got dressed and no-one needs to see that!! Besides, it is waaay too cute to wear, I don’t want to get it dirty!!

Look out family – guess whatchyall getting for Xmas?!

Thanks Karen for fun sewalong!!
