Project #12....Clothespin Apron

I so, so, so loved making this. I think it is the most adorable apron EVER!!! It was really easy to make...under an hour. I did I few things differently....first, I used a different fabric for the waist band and trim. I normally HATE making my own bias tape but since it was a total of 15 inches, I thought I could handle it. Also, when I sewed the pocket to the apron back, I did them right sides together so that when I flipped them out, it showed the vibrant pocket on top of the muted back. I am loving this technique. It just gives it a little more "style".

Here is what you need to complete this dalring little project......
  • One yard of fabric...quilting weight
  • The pattern located in the front of this amazing book
  • A copy of "One Yard Wonders....101 Sewing Projects" by Rebecca Yaker & Patricia Haskins

As for my next project, you may need to give me a little extra time but I promise to make it worth your while. Not because it is hard but because I am doing 5 boutiques in the next 3 weeks, and am feeling just a tad bit overwhelmed. So, since I am asking you all to keep following me and please be patient, the next 2 projects after this one will BOTH be giveaways!! And I promise they both will be oh so worth the wait.
