last minute gifts are in full bloom at my house!!! my last chore was to tackle an apron. (this pattern scared me, so ive been avoiding it for MONTHS!)
once i got the first one done, i couldn't believe how EASY it was to make!!! i used a few different tutorials because they all had tips that i liked and disliked. (so i cant really give credit to just one). after a last minute emergency call to my sister , because she has made a bunch of these, we brainstormed an easier way to attach the top/bottom sash.
I'm loving this fun cow fabric found at my LQS!! this apron is for me :)
yardage used was 1 fat quarter for the body and 1/2 yard for the sashing/straps.
the idea we came up with was using the burrito/tube method for the top/bottom sashing--i have used it to make pillow cases. WOW did this technique make it SOOOOO much easier!!! it also hides the seams for you which guarantees no fraying of edges!!
Time to dive into my monster pile of fat quarters!!! who wants an apron for Christmas? Mrs. Clause is on a ROLL!
