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!
