My “Sad Little Apron” Apron
I know the picture is overexposed but I like it that way. I figured if I was going to be unhappy with the project then I’d use the pictures I like best. This apron is….not good. No love went into it. I do love the pattern and would like to have another go at it sometime. Just look how cute it looks on the package-
I cut out the pockets too but as I got going I started to hate it. It probably has a lot to do with the fabric. I need to save money for work stuff and so I pulled out an old curtain from my stash. I should have bought something sweet and colorful or made it in leather with studs and spikes.
I have bias tape in orange and yellow but I didn’t think I’d be able to look at it with those colors so I made some with a tie that was attached to the curtain. It didn’t go so well. It bubbles around the neck. I scrapped the bias tape and just turned the seams under and attached all the pieces using a zigzag stitch. Lately my machine has been skipping a stitch here and there when I use the zigzag option so it just adds to the horror of it.
Here’s another picture that is almost the same but not-
It reminds me a bit of a school girl’s uniform. Maybe I should have played that up for the picture. Ah well-here’s to another project down anyway. See you next week!
Here I am goofing around-
Pattern: Hollywood Pattern 1224
Fabric: an old lightweight canvas curtain $0
Time to make: about an hour and a half. I’m counting the time it took to open up all the seams of the curtain and remove the super long ties.
Will I use it?: I guess so. It’s just for cooking so it doesn’t matter so much what it looks like. I will never wear it around company.
Total Price: $0
