The Waldorf Apron

I made my first apron using the book, A is for Apron that my sister-in-law gave me. I bought some vintage fabric at a thrift store and thought that I could make a hand bag as a birthday present for my mother-in-law. Instead, I decided to make her the Waldorf apron.

Isn't the fabric gorgeous? I was glad to hear that she loves it!

The directions were fairly simple to follow. The only trouble I had was trying to figure out how to attach the waist band, but it came out all right at the end. 

My favorite part about this apron is the scalloped edge on the bottom. The colors of the flowers are also very bright and cheerful.

I really enjoyed making my very first apron for a special lady. I've already begun gathering materials for the full-length apron I promised Abigail (my sil). It is so cute and you'll love the look of that one, too!

Happy Sewing!:)

Thanks, Abigail. I love the fabric, too. In fact, I still have enough left over to make another one if I want to. Yours will be coming soon...
