My sister asked me to sew her an apron for Christmas (well, okay, for sometime after Christmas). She manages a restaurant and shared with me that she is allowed to wear an apron that includes the colors black and red. (I did forget to ask if white was okay–I really hope it is!) I found this perfect fabric at Hobby Lobby last week. My dear husband when I said, “Look, I found the perfect fabric for Bobbie’s apron!” responded, “You mean because it has aprons on it?” (I might have rolled my eyes.) Well, yeah, sort of . . . but it’s also black and red–the perfect colors–and the aprons on it have this great retro feel to them. The whole fabric has a great feel to it. It was exactly what I wanted to give this simple apron a some excitement.
I used McCalls 2233 which went together perfectly according to the instructions included. (Yay! I didn’t have to modify anything!) I think it made for nice functional apron which should work very well for kitchen duties at home or on the job. I already have plans to make one for myself. I have the perfect fabric in my stash for it!
