Fun Fabric!

The hardest part of a project is sometimes
CHOOSING the fabric.
I was overwhelmed with the choices
when I arrived at the fabric shop!!!!
I FINALLY settled on this one!

My friend Ellen had a birthday...
and since we prepare a meal for senior citizens twice a month...
an APRON seemed to be the perfect gift!!!!

You probably know......
I have PLENTY of fabric in my stash.
But.....
Nothing seemed QUITE right and....
I wanted to make this one SPECIAL!

I found a free pattern here.
and....

I have lots of bias tape.
Good thing!!!!
This pattern requires 7 yards of it!!!!!
Sheesh!
That's a lot of bias tape!

I love this apron.

Maybe I'll make one for me too!!!!
What????!!!!!
You think I have enough already????
:/

  5. It's not enough until you think it's enough! Love the bias tape one you made.... I'll have to look up the pattern. Maybe everybody gets an apron next Christmas. It's something you can make personalized, and most of them cook or at least help. Thanks for the idea, Beth.
    Hugs~
