Apron is Finished!

apron 003

I finished the apron  and here it is!  It turned out cute and took me between 3 and 4 hours to complete.  A more experienced seamstress could whip this out in no time but as I am an extremely rusty sewer, I thought 3-4 hours was pretty good.  I usually stick to straight seams.  Sewing  pillows and very simple curtains are about as complex as I get.  But, I have to say this was a lot of fun and the directions were clear and very easy to follow.

Want to make one of your own?  Visit Jodi over at Pleasant Home to take a peek and some photos of other completed aprons from her pattern kits and then pop over to Pleasant Home on Etsy and pick out a fabric combination you like.  She does most of the work for you (except the sewing :)) and the fabric combos she offers all work perfectly together.

It's adorable! Great job too! I'm not sure I could whip that out in 3-4 hours! I'm a novice when it comes to sewing!

I'm popping over to her site now!
