Recently, my Mom gave me an apron(below) that my Dad made in Junior High for my Grandmother. I just love it, and was so inspired to try and make an apron myself.

This is my hostess apron. I LOVE this fabric. It is from Tracy Porter's collection at Joann's.

My first full length apron. I thought this fabric was so darling, and it was on the $2 a yard rack at Joann's!

There were quite a few patterns to choose from, but this is the one I ended up using. I have not used a pattern in years, so I made a few mistakes, but overall I love the way they turned out.

  4. I'm impressed! You did a great job. I love that you have the one your dad made. How sweet is that?

  5. Oh Dawn...these are beuatiful. I am so in awe of you people who know how to sew. I really should learn.


  6. I am way behind in reading and commenting on your blog. Anyhow, wanted to let you know I love your aprons. I don't remember my apron from 8th grade looking as nice as these. :o(

    Great job!

  7. Wonderful aprons! I have a sewing machine that I just stare at. Wish I had a sewing "coach" to get me started again! Anyone in NE FL?
