I made a similar apron for a secret sister gift swap with some of my good friends.  I knew I wanted to make her an apron, but also know shes busty which generally means half aprons look best.  So after doing some searching I decided to just wing it & try out an idea in my head... GREAT idea.

Because of the way I did the waist band... like over sized bias tape it used a LOT of yardage. I also made the straps long so it can be tied in front or in back (a kick I am on lately).  Even though it uses more fabric I will probably continue to make the straps this was as its the fastest... easiest to attach & makes for a strong tie.  I am considering having a pattern printed to put on etsy, but honestly I don't even know if there would be interest!

Anyways it used 2/3 yard of the Micheal Miller Aqua/Brown Paisley & 2/3 yard of the matching Micheal Miller brown & then about 12" of matching bias tape. I was gonna put a label in but forgot, oh well!

Enough talk... here it is... they aren't the best pics cause I finished at 1:30 in the morning & just wanted to get to bed Smiley

That is so cute!Great work! I love that fabric, I made a ring sling out of it and some booties for a girlfriend....now I only have little scrappys left to wipe my tears.. Grin

So you, could spend the morning walkin with me, quite amazed. As I am unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed.

Thanks!  I know I tried to cut as well as I could so that I can make the most out of it, it WASN'T cheap.  But I LOVE how well it washes up & I didn't even have to iron it!

That is so pretty.  You did a super job on it.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

I love the fabric and style of the apron.
