My sister asked me to make an apron for her in April or May. She sent me a picture of what she wanted…. black with tiny polka-dots and a few faint ruffles on the bottom edge. Black didn’t seem practical for baking…. flour, butter and sugar will show up like a fly in the milk. But black and pink are so cute together! I’ve been wanting an apron myself for quite some time, so the idea appealed to me. My sister-in-law, Jennie, came for a visit in March and brought me beautiful Beatrix Potter Benjamin Bunny fabric…. perfect for an apron for a Miss Potter super-fan!
June rolled around and we were off to a cabin for vacation. Before we left I gathered fabric, ric-rac, ribbon, thread and I found a pattern that looked fairly straight forward. The creative juices were flowing…. but sewing time didn’t present itself at the cabin. Bummer.
December rolled around and my sister was coming for Christmas! I had great expectations, but I didn’t actually get the apron sewn before gift giving commenced. It was more of a last day of December gift. She loved it and so did I. I just had to share how cute it turned out. Now hopefully I’ll get mine done before next Christmas baking season!
