Can't believe I made this!

I made this apron for my sister's birthday- she'd mentioned liking all the cute aprons she'd been seeing. I am kind of a self-taught sewer. I've sewn window treatments, baby blankets, on cards, even canvas for our boat, but I'd never used a pattern! I was intimidated at even the thought of using a pattern! I saw this pattern at my local craft store & thought I'd give it a try. Turns out it was a quilter's pattern, so still not pattern paper involved. I didn't own a rotary cutter at the time ( my mother-in-law gave me one recently!) so it took a lot longer than anyone that knows what they're doing would've taken! Ha!

I'm not sure who the fabric is by, but it's so yummy it makes me happy just thinking about it!
The name of the pattern is 'Apron Jazz' by Barbara Brandeburg- #145-AJ


  1. Ooohhhh. I love that apron, what was the name of the pattern? I may have to get it for myself!

  2. Om my it is darling! Love the combination of those 2 fabrics together. She will be so happy when she opens it up!


I appreciate you taking the time to come by- and your comments make my day! Thank you!!
