My extremely talented friend, Sarahfae, is the creator and cook behind the blog “Addicted to Veggies.” Over a year ago I requested that she make a recipe with coconut. She did and it was amazing. Unfortunately I have been the biggest jerk ever and did not make her a thank you gift until this challenge gave me the push to do so.
I chose a fabric with flamingos because I know how much she loves them. The pattern was very straightforward to sew…. but that may be because I make things up as I go along. Basically, I used the pattern pieces and not the directions :) The black strip along the top of the fabric is sewn in one continuous piece instead of three separate pieces like the pattern suggested. I applied it the same way I would apply binding to a quilt. It’s hard to see in the pictures, but the black fabric along the bottom and sides is gathered.
This is my go to pattern for aprons. It’s quick, cute, and functional!
