I don’t know why, but I feel so giddy about my new sewing apron. Perhaps because the fabric was *perfect* for this project and the sewing apron was a relatively easy-peasy, quick, instant gratification kind of project. Yup, that must be it! I’ll be wearing my new sewing apron whenever I sew now. I followed the directions from this tutorial nearly to a tee, I only deviated when making the pockets: I have a total of four pockets: three 5″ wide pockets and then a much skinnier one to hold my water soluable fabric pen. While my sewing corner is small (and believe me I am most grateful to have dedicated space to sew in our extra bedroom!), it seems I’m always leaving behind something I need behind on my sewing desk or ironing board when I’m in the opposite spot. Or if I’m rotary cutting in the kitchen No more will I need to walk the 5 steps (or longer if I’m in the kitchen) to retrieve the item I need since it will be in one of the pockets of my new sewing apron!
Fabric for this project was purchased from http://www.fabricshack.com. It is from the Make Do Mend collection by Michelle D’Amore for Benartex. Just do a search for “make do mend” on their website.
