This is another apron finished for the Depot gift shop. I added the ruffle at the bottom after seeing aprons made by a friend here in town. Hers were all much larger/longer and more involved than mine. I think I’ll change from the 3-across pocket style to just patch pockets. Simpler, and possibly less involved than this style.
Here’s another apron that’s in the works — almost finished, except for sewing the side seams and adding the tie.
When this apron is finished, I’ll work on the remaining two that have been cut out — they’ll be adult size, and I’m not sure how I will embellish them. As I make these aprons, my mind goes back to the first apron I made in junior high home economics. It was half a yard of fabric, hemmed top and bottom, with a plastic ring/band slipped through the top channel. I haven’t seen aprons like that in ages — they were the first “One Size Fits All” in aprons. Quick to make and just as quick to put on or take off. By coincidence, my first apron fabric was a brown and white gingham, much like the pink and white shown here. The photo caption says, “1960’s” which would be about right, time-wise.
Onward and upward, I’d like to get the last of the aprons done so I can move on to other projects. I have a few ideas for things to make for the gift shop, and I’m hoping they will bring in some extra sales revenue.
Be safe, be well and please be happy. Be sure to tell those you love that you love them.
