My Sister's Present.



Front.



Close up of fabric and bottom ruffle.



Close up of top.



Back ties. It is halter style- so it ties around the neck and around the back.



Matching reversable headband. (Just like the one I made my Mom, but with this fabric.)





OK- those of you who read this and know her- dont tell her. She came with me to the fabric store one time, and we were both drooling over this fabric. Matched it up with a stripe for a little contrast- although I regret that a little bit. I wish I would have used plain black. But it still goes really well I think, and I think she will like it. She has been wanting an apron that they sell in the middle of the mall for a while- so hopefully this one will do. I saw this pattern on the front of a book, and had to buy the whole thing- it was just so "her".

I have been searching EVERYWHERE the last few weeks looking for an apron pattern as cute as this and have come up short. Where did you get this pattern? Or did you design it yourself?

Mama Krit- I ended up finding this pattern at my local quilt shop.

Unfortunately I paid WAY more for it than that- but it has definitely been worth it. The pattern for my Mom's came from there too, and you can adjust the size. LOVE LOVE LOVE this book.
