Nap Time Sewing

On Wednesday I made this little apron during Ella's nap. Yes, I could have been doing school work, but I had been thinking about making this baby for weeks and didn't want to put it off any longer. Such a lovely way to spend a quiet nap time!

I've made quite a few of these aprons through the last year. I've got the pattern down now, so they don't take long. It's fun to look for different fabrics to put together to fit the person who will be getting it. I won't say who this one is for since it's a gift that hasn't been gifted yet.

I originally created the pattern from a vintage apron my Aunt Jean found for me at a garage sale. I would have just kept using that apron, but it was getting pretty worn. I basically put the apron down on newspaper and cut the same shape for the pattern. Over time I've made a few changes, including adding the pocket frill in the photo above. I like the character it adds.

I made mini versions of these aprons for Ella's birthday and for my nieces Hailey and Malena at Christmas last year. They're pretty adorable when they're that small! I'll try to find pictures of those and post them before long.

Coming soon: our Apple Fest adventure!
