Aprons!

A small departure from my usual stuff, but I wanted to share because I am ridiculously pleased with how these turned out!

My sister is a keen and talented baker so when I saw these cute prints I couldn't resist picking them up to make a birthday gift for her.  Sadly for my tastebuds, but happily for my waistline she lives in the UK so a project involving no fitting is ideal.




No pattern used, I just cut around one of my far inferior aprons for the basic shape and added a lined front pocket plus lined the aprons for a bit of extra stability and because it's quicker and easier than finishing all the edges.



I'm quite tempted to make myself a patisserie print pair of pyjamas or bathrobe.....!

What a great idea! I like to sew for my sister's birthday, but I've fallen behind the last couple of years. You have provided me with inspiration to plan ahead for this year.
