Ruffles & Stuff Apron

Ruffle Apron

I am a little bit excited to be posting this week as it is the first time I have been able to post since February.  I disappeared for a while because I was pregnant and lost all sewing mojo.  When I realised that this week’s challenge was aprons I was pretty stoked because I just took part in a sewalong to make an apron that finished on the weekend.

I have had this tutorial saved for about a year but have never gotten around to making it.  When the sewalong was announced I knew that this was the apron I would make.  All the material that I used was leftover from the quilt I made for Imogen’s nursery.  I love anything that helps me decrease the stash a bit.  If my stash looks smaller then Corey doesn’t get as annoyed when I buy new material!

This apron was super easy to make and I managed to get it finished in a couple of hours.  Mind you those couple of hours were spread over a few days as I had to squeeze them in with housework into Imogen’s nap times.  Now I would love to say that this marks my return to regular posting on Sew Weekly but I don’t think that will be the case.  Hopefully I will be able to take part in a few more challenges before the year is out.

  1. Really, really sweet. I love your choice of prints. Makes me want to get back to quilting again.

  2. Well done Kat that is really sweet. I bet the quilt looks amazing – such pretty colours! If you are determined to sew then you will, but a small baby does make it very hard! Good luck!

  3. Very cute fabric! I can only imagine what the nursery looks like if the leftovers are this cute. :D

  4. Welcome back! What a very ruffly apron. I know this sounds silly, but until this challenge I don’t think I had ever seen a tiered, ruffled apron – only the ones with ruffles around the edges.

  5. Great way to use up those bits and pieces and have a pleasant reminder of your little one any time you wear it.
