Ruffles & Stuff 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.
⁃ Fabric: leftovers from Imogen’s nursery.
⁃ Pattern: Ruffle Apron Tutorial by One More Moore
⁃ Year: 2007
⁃ Notions: n/a
⁃ Time to complete: 2 hours
⁃ First worn: Last saturday for these photos
⁃ Wear again? Definitely! I love a good apron and I have a bad habit of wiping my hands on my clothes when I cook.
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.
