I made this pattern once before so I knew it was child's play until the bias binding neckline.
The pattern is "My Mom's Favorite Apron" from Sew Simple Patterns (click on the title for a nice big photo). See how cute that is when it's on your body?
Of course it's reversible!
Red = Let's Play (Plaid with floral red) for Benartex
Blue = Hankie Club by Whister Studios Style (mini dots blue) for Windham Fabrics
By 1:30am the last thing I wanted to do was hand stitch bias binding, so I utilized a fast & fabulous method from Accio Fabric! (If Vicki would just upload a freaking tutorial I could link straight to it! hint! hint!)
Check out these results--a perfect seam on one side and cute top stitching on the reverse.
Well, this beauty was done by 2am and at the post office by 8:30 (this is when the postal worker told me that it wouldn't go out until 4 pm and my lip curled as I growled at her). Thankfully, it is scheduled to arrive on Saturday! Happy Birthday Aunt Pat!
