My mom has been wanting a new apron for a while. She has trouble finding them because she likes the full apron but she is short (about 5' even) so most of the full ones are really long on her.

I decided to make her a new one for Christmas making a template out of her old one, which was originally made by my oder brother when he was in shop class in high school. I think it was suppose to be a shop apron but mom has been using it a long time (considering me and my brother have been out of school for 20 years). Anyways...that apron now has a huge hole in it so she definitely needed a new one.

I wanted to find some cute Coca-Cola fabric as she collects Coke items and wants to decorate her kitchen with a Coca-Cola theme. Sadly I couldn't find any and I waited to late to order anything.

In the end I copied the coke logo from the net...tracing it from my monitor (my printer is out of ink) onto freezer paper and using fabric paint.

I am really pleased with how this came out considering it is my first project that wasn't like a throw pillow or a zippered pouch. I didn't follow a specific pattern but I did look at a lot of them to get a general idea of how to construct it.

Sorry for the wrinkled appearance. I didn't get around to taking pictures until after she had been using it....she was getting ready to wash it when I snagged it.

Close up of the pocket. This was my first time doing a stencil and using fabric paint so it's a little wonky.

It's lined with red with white polka dot fabric but the picture doesn't really show the dots well.

Action shot! Mom made me blank her face out because she hates how she looks in photos...lol

I think she was really pleased with it and it turned out pretty well. Next time I will make the top a bit narrower and maybe adhere interfacing to the neck strap for extra support.

Thanks for looking Smiley
C & C always welcome!

Looks great!  I like the polka dots between the top and bottom of the apron.

Thanks for the nice comments!

It actually was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I think because I thought it out a lot before I actually started sewing this time...usually I just jump in and realize about half way through that I messed up...lol
