This week I decided to make a last minute gift for a family friend we went to visit today...
It's a 1/2 apron with a wrap around tie :)
I didn't use a pattern to make this, I just decided to wing it - which can either work out really well (like this did) or a complete disaster...so I'm pretty lucky :)
I used just over a fat 1/4 of the patchwork fabric and then boarded it in a red flower fabric (and used this to make the tie too), all up I used a total of about 40cm x width of the red flower fabric. Both fabrics were purchased at spotlight last year. I'm pretty sure both fabrics are 100% cotton too :)
I decided to add some decorative top stitching to the boarders - I think it has added a nice finish :)
I was particularly impressed with my efforts to make the inside of the apron neat and tidy - mainly so I didn't have to line it :P
Look at those seams! Yep - I'm still impressed by them :)
The gift recipient loved it - which is always an added bonus - she said "Thank you so much for my amazing apron, feels almost too nice to cook in!"
Yay! There is a big smile on my face now :D
