I decided to make myself an apron for Valentine's day. I got the fabric practically for free from a place called Leftovers etc. http://www.leftoversetc.com/
It is a place that is for teachers, Sunday school teachers, and home schoolers to pick up supplies for crafts. It costs $4 to fill a medium size brown paper bag. That's a lot of fabric and buttons. I've also found some really cool vases, books, patterns, patches, all kinds of stuff. Next time I go I'm getting jars to make terrariums. Anyway back to the apron...
Here is a picture of me cleaning up my mess after making cake truffles for my BF.
Here is the apron laid out flat.
Here is the back. I sewed ruffles on some muslin that I had laying around.
Here is what it looks like with the ruffles messed up so you can see how I assembled it.
