To Knit or not to Knit...Is that a Question?

« on: December 14, 2007 08:22:18 AM »



Fabric: Urban Chicks “Summer in the City” Fabric for the middle and birds on the edges, JoAnn’s fabric for front side panels
Inspiration: McCall’s 3979 Vintage Aprons
Size: X-Large (20-22)
Modifications: Added side seam pockets
Enjoyment Factor: 9 - love the construction details
Time: 3 days

This was definitely my piece de resistance in apron making. I have loved this pattern since I saw it made in black and white oil cloth material. I had yet to make it because, although I love aprons, I have very little use for them. So when my friend asked me for aprons I knew this one would be topping the list.

That is sooooo cute.  Love the colours you chose and the addition of pockets.  Too many things are without pockets, it seems.

Well done!
