For the apron I wanted retro cool so I dove into my collection of Katie Jump Rope by Denyse Schmidt. I really wish this would be reprinted. It is, by far, my most favorite Denyse Schmidt line. This is an apron I will wear all the time!
I used this Vogue pattern and chose A as my base.
I made a couple of changes to the original to make it my own.
I added the floral pop of fun!
and the edge on the pocket.
I honestly could not figure out the instruction for the straps in the back. I am neither a garment sewer nor a pattern reader. Thank goodness I had a surprise visit from Heather from The Sewing Loft for my birthday! She brought me gifts and knowledge!!!!! Thank you Heather! She has a SWEET quilt in the new book by Martingale Fun Sized Quilts!
This made me laugh so much!
The incentive giveaway this week is two mini charms of Valori Wells fabric for Robert Kaufman!!!!!
