Pretty Little Apron

I've been wanting to sew an apron for, geeze, forever now.  So, I decided since it's a long weekend, I was going to get it done.  I wanted to make it completely out of left over scraps from previous projects.  I found a stash of partially pieced fabric from a quilt I had made for my mother-in-law.  Perfect!  Love the colors, and I am super excited with how it turned out.  This was my first experience with sewing pleats, love them!

I think I will make some matching potholders to go with it.  Let me know if you sew one up for yourself, and make sure to post pics!

  1. Your apron is so pretty, love the colors. I have this on my to-do list also. Will show pic when I get it done. Thanks for the inspiration.

    1. Thanks Lynda!! They're a lot of fun to make, you will enjoy it! Hopefully I will be making some more soon, and will definitely post pics!

  2. This is adorable, Holly! I love to make and wear aprons...they make me feel very Tasha Tudorish! I'll have to post some of my creations. This apron is so perfect for fall and the holidays...great job!

    Sweet blessings,

  3. Thank you Laura! I would love to see your creations! I am in the middle of making one for my niece, she's turning 8 today. I was trying to think if I could remember when I was 8, seems like a long time ago!

    God Bless,
