The time has come to retire a favorite apron. It was a gift from a dear friend, it is older than 4 of my children. It is showing stains and wear and tear from many, many meals and messes. The stains will no longer bleach out and the fabric has grown so thin it’s tearing and fraying.
I’m looking forward to Spring, and to celebrate its arrival I decided to sew up a new apron. Taking a yard of feminine, flowery fabric and using my old apron as a template, I had a brand new apron in less than 2 hours.
Out with the old . . .
In with the new!!!
This was a super easy project. I laid my old apron down on the new fabric and cut around it. I added a couple rows of ric-rac for a bit of extra detailing then finished the edges with seam binding.
Don’t forget pockets. What’s an apron with out a pocket! I made the ties from scraps of the fabric and I’m all ready to get cooking or cleaning or mess-making. Are you in need of a touch of spring? An apron maybe?
