I recently did a swap through Flirty Apron Swap. Shawnee did a wonderful job hosting! I got to make my apron for Jennifer in Blackfoot, Idaho. (That place just sounds cool!) I was pretty nervous about making an apron. I knew I could do it, but the process seemed a bit scary. Ahh!
But, my mom gave me some good pointers, and off I went!
I made a practice apron and it turned out pretty good. I am glad I made it, because I learned a lot from the process. (Like sticking my ties in to soon and sewing them inside the lining)
As it turned out - It wasn't that scary after all! The apron has a very simple design with no added frills, but I am definitely looking forward to expanding my sewing know-how and trying new patterns.
I just loved these buttons! This was my idea of adding some little touches that weren't sew-involved.
I am kinda thinking of taking a class....I never thought I would want to learn that much about sewing, but it would be nice to feel more comfortable adding trims and "frillies". At least then I would be able to call things by their names and not just generalize with a made-up name.
Frillies. adj. Cute and adorable. noun. The things that you put on aprons to make it look really professional and sassy.
Anyways, I hope my partner enjoyed it and will get some good use out of it!
