Remember this fabric? And remember my daughter asked me to make an apron for her for Christmas? Well, I did. I didn't quite have it ready to put under the tree, but it was finished before the year ended. It turned out great and my daughter LOVES it. It's just taken me a while to convince her to model it for me.
I made it without a pattern - it's basically fashioned after the traditional "chef's apron". I used a white on white dot for the ties and facing. I wasn't able to talk her into letting me use the newsprint fabric ... but she's only 11 and I made it for her so she got final veto power.
I had a pretty eyelet bedskirt on our queen bed for a long time. When we upgraded to a king, I didn't want to get rid of it so I saved this trim. I didn't know what I was going to do with it at the time, but when I was putting this apron together, I came across it in my sewing room and thought it would make the perfect little custom touch. Recycling at it's best. :)
