Home Ec. Project: Apron

I finished the apron a while ago but just hadn't gotten around to uploading the photos and making a post about it. Back in the fall I needed a special gift for a friends bridal shower so I decided to combine two things I love: Christmas and sewing! And make her cute little apron. It fit her perfectly and she loved it(I already knew she would love it because I used polka dot fabric, Krys loves polka dots, it's almost an obsession). Making this apron was pretty easy which I was surprised by because I jumped way ahead on the project list instead of following in order. I found that the hardest part was cutting the fabric to the right size. To add to the challenge, I completed the apron while visiting my parents, nothing like tackling a new sewing project and having to use your mom's 25 year old(at least) sewing machine.
