When I asked my daughter what she wanted for Christmas, one of the first things on her list was:  “I want you to make me an apron.”  No problem.  I selected a couple of patterns in Billings as her gift, and told her that we would go out shopping so she could select the fabric.  My sister was in Indy for the holidays, so the three of us had a great afternoon.  We ended up picking fabric for two different aprons.  The fabric for Apron Two is so cute – I’m eager to show you my progress for it, too.

It’s now almost Valentine’s Day, and Jess asked that I have her apron ready by then.  I’m posting these photos as validation that I am working on Apron One.  I’m intent on having it in the mail on Monday.  Here are a few pictures of the project in progress:

Isn’t this pattern sweet?  It gave the inspiration to use coordinating fabrics.  I wish I could have found the chicken and egg fabric.

Here’s the bodice:

Here’s the skirt and pockets:

This is a very simple sewing project.  I don’t know why I’m dragging my feet . . .  An apron would make a good Easter or Mother’s Day gift, too.
