This year I'm taking a ceramics class so I decided I needed an apron. Not to mention I do a lot of baking and I'm a very messy/clumsy person in the kitchen. So I sat down yesterday and made this.
It's a dark navy blue, with a flowery, light blue strap. I've yet to master the art of taking picture of yourself so I don't have one of it on me. But here it is stretched out on the floor. It actually looks really good on me, I can't wait to use it!
I made it based off a pattern I found on about.com (I'll find the link if anyone wants it). I altered it a bit though because I'm a small person. I was going to add pockets but then I figured that they'd just end up getting filled with flour or something after I spilled stuff all over the place.
I also have a request. For the strap I used some of this fabric I found at Walmart. They only had a yard left of it and it was in the clearance section. I really, really like it and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could find some. The selvage edge has Hamil Textiles LTD PATT #27682 written on it and that's about all I know. Here is a picture of it.
If you can find some please tell me where you found it. I'd really like more of this so I can make something out of it.
And before I go, here's a picture of my dog because she was my support during the construction of this. And because she looks so gosh darned cute. I almost had her modeling the apron but she wasn't too keen on me putting it on her. Oh well.
Thanks for looking!
