my life in pictures and words

i need an apron!

So I think I had posted a photo of me wearing my Starbucks Coffee Company apron and one of my old coworkers had said she lost all of hers.  I offered to make one for her and she said that it’d be cool to have one.  So I went to look for some fabric and started.

First I laid out the apron and cut along the edges and included a 1/2 inch seam allowance.

I cut two pieces, front and back and cut a piece for pockets.

A coworker from Old Navy asked me to make three aprons for Christmas gifts for her after she saw this post on IG.img_20140730_174351

This is the first one. Sorry about the blurry photos……

The second one is for her sister who survived breast cancer.

She asked to include this ribbon somewhere.  I thought it added a personal touch.

The apron strings.  She really liked this print even thought it was on flannel.  I thought it went well, color-wise, too.

The last one.  I forgot to take photos of it at home so when I brought them to work I ended up taking photos of it at work.

I was proud of my super straight stitching so I took a photo of it.

So glad that I was able to help her with some handmade gifts .  Also, making aprons is fun!
