I made the neck tie shorter on one side and longer on the other so the bow would be tied right at the front right or left side for a kind of feminine touch. And I wanted it to have a nice pocket and be reversible. So I put in pockets on the inside and outside just on the right side.
So this is what I came up with. Its supposed to be a busy mom apron to go from cooking to giving baths, to doing crafts with the kids. I think it will be okay. I hope the recipient likes it.
I found a great apron site online while I was trying to figure out what to make. I found this place with 56 free apron patterns. There is so much there but I didn't find exactly what I wanted either. But I'm sure I'll be back to make something there at some point. Its a great compilation of patterns and its free!
Then after I got mine cut and partly made I saw what I wanted at Barbara's blog. Of course she doesn't have the pattern out yet but when she does I will get it and I can't wait to make one. Barbara's aprons look so well sewn and her fabric is so darling. Apron envy. - nanette
