An Apron

I have had this apron pattern for about a year. I had everything I needed to make it except matching thread and buttons. I finally found some matching thread! I kept looking in the reds for a thread to match it to no avail. I finally said to myself how about in the oranges. Finally!! I found a thread color to match! The fabric looked red to me, but according to the matching of the thread it is more of a tomato soup color red/orange!! LOL
I never did purchase any buttons for the apron. I saved myself some pennies by tying a knot on either side of the neck tie after pushing it through the buttonhole! I then called it done!
I think this is so cute! I am very happy with it! :0)

  3. Karen, you're going to love this. As I'm reading your blog, admiring your apron, my granddaughter, Katie (6 yrs. old) immediately sees the apron and asks "Mimi, whose pretty apron is that?" She loved it as much as I do.

  7. I have this pattern and made one about a year ago. It was nicely put together and very fun to make. I also have a favorite quilt book by the Barbara Brandeberg called Tried and True Cabbage Favorites there are some really nice patterns in there.

  10. Very pretty Karen!! I've been thinking about making some aprons also. Love the way you tied the knots to secure the strap.
