A is for Apron

4:20 PM 2 Comments A+ a-

I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled sewing today to work on my first commissioned sewing project! One of my co-workers is a member of a group who plan women's programs at her church. Next weekend they are having a pie making night and my co-worker asked me to make apron's for the six women who planned the event, as well as one apron to give away as a door prize. I'm trying to get the 6 leader's aprons finished for their planning meeting tomorrow night but it's definitely going to be a race to finish! I'm using Butterick 5302 with several quilting cottons from JoAnns. I'm working on them in an assembly line manner and hoping I won't have to stay up all night! Here's what they will look like when all sewn together!

I'm still debating what to do for the door prize apron. Originally I was going to make it out of a completely different fabric from my stash, but after cutting I realized I have enough of the skirt fabric and the blue trim fabric to make another apron. I'm thinking it would be cute to have the bib and skirt in the floral with all blue trim. Something to ponder while ironing endless seams and watching a Harry Potter marathon...

The apron's have definitely been a good project to keep me busy since I dropped the boyfriend off at the airport yesterday for his month long trip. In the 5 years we've dated, he's been out of the country for around 9 months all together, so this definitely isn't new territory for us, but still, it's always hard to be away from the one you love. (sorry for the sap :)
Love these "Keep Calm" posters!
