How's this for a vintage pattern with a modern twist (the fabric, I mean)
The pattern is posted full size, which means that you don't have to do any of that pesky resizing--like enlarge by 200%, and so on. The pattern simply prints out to scale over 12 sheets of paper -- you just cut the pieces out and scotch tape them together. People!! It's so easy! The fabric is from Jo-Ann's ETC. Check the fabric wall in the quilting section.
I decided to sew down the side of the bias tape so that my apron lies flat. The creases in Susan Branch's version are adorable too.
Susan Branch also has the most wonderful books. They are full of some of the best holiday ideas and delicious recipes--and her illustrations are so sweet! You have to check out this amazingly multi-talented lady!
Apron # 2 on my little Katie...
Here's another apron I made--on the fly--off the top of my head--which is the way I do most things, actually. It can drive folks crazy, but I'm very organized in my own little mind.
Pea Pod Perfection. Summer veggies at thier best.
Some day soon I will be pulling a chair out to the middle of my garden along with a bottle of ranch dressing. It will be a feast. And I may invite Tyrone...if he promises to be good.
