Gingham Apron Sew Along - Progress Report
My favorite apron pattern has come up missing! I have no idea where it has gone! Luckily, Joann Fabrics had Simplicity patterns on sale 5 for $5. I knew I wanted a vintage inspired apron, so this is the pattern I chose. I am having a hard time deciding which one to make though. I prefer full aprons and bought the fabric for a full apron but I am loving the ruffled half apron.....
Unfortunately Joann's didn't have any gingham fabric. What?!?!?! I had assumed it would be easy to find gingham fabric. I guess I was wrong.
So off to Hancock Fabrics I went to find some fabric. They did have a small section of gingham and I decided on yellow because we are in the middle of redoing our kitchen and the color will be yellow.
I actually have a lemonade theme picked out for the kitchen, and pink is going to be an accent color. I am trying to decide now how to add a little pink to my apron to break up the yellow a little. I am planning on sewing it next week so I have a little bit more time to figure it out.
Of course this wasn't the only pattern and fabric I picked out. That little piece of fabric and pattern ended up costing me over $50! Well....sorta..... I had taken Sunshine to tennis lessons and while we were in town I decided it was a good time to go shopping for the fabric and pattern. Which meant I was taking Sunshine shopping with me. BIG MISTAKE! She is loving maxi skirts right now so we ended up with several skirt patterns and some fabric for her. And all I wanted was some gingham fabric and an apron pattern!
