Finally! I tried several times to download this picture, I don't know why it wouldn't load. Anyway, the finale of my handmade gifts!
My mother-in-law had forwarded me an email about our foremothers' necessity of aprons and all the things they were used for, and she said she could use one. I took the hint! Immediately, I found a cute pattern at the fabric store but it took me over an hour to find three fabrics that I thought would go well together. The pattern actually calls for four; I couldn't find a fourth but as the fourth was for the lining I got the appropriate yardage from one of the first three. The pattern came together pretty easily considering I had left this to the very end to sit down and do. I thought it turned out really cute. I like the button, too!
Pattern: McCall's Retro Aprons, M5643
I just may sew more things this year. Hopefully some new curtains are next!
