Did you think I'd make it this far into the year posting an apron each month? I've had so much enjoyment making these; it's almost sad to think there's only three more to go this year.
Made up in a brown cotton print for fall, the apron is very simple, a good one for a beginner to sew. I learned to make one continuous strap which feeds through side facings, forming an adjustable neck strap and back ties, eliminating the need for ties at the neck. I like that.
I used this 1971, well-worn pattern,
and appliqued the rooster to give it some character. Don't you think he looks like the Kellogg's Corn Flakes rooster?
Just for fun, I'm adding a child's apron, made much the same way except it ties at the neck,
has a big double pocket, and is reversible.
This would be nice for helping in the kitchen, or for carrying crayons, etc.
This was a free pattern from
I bet you know a little girl who would love to have one of these, so dust off the machine and get started! You have less than four months until Christmas!
