Here is my third apron!  I made this one for my mother-in-law.  She doesn't cook but is very young and trendy, so I tried to make something I thought she would still enjoy.


I'm not sure why the fabric looks so stiff here!  The shape is actually very similar to the brown and green apron at the beginning of my post.


This was a challenge for me because I had to make sure it was absolutely perfect[\i].  I tucked in everything very nice and tiny and made perfectly straight stitches.  Yay!  If there were any problems I wouldn't be able to make myself give it someone, but I'm very proud of what I came up with.



I also went through and re-did the uneven stitching on the green and white apron Smiley

You should be so proud!!!  Wow!

It is very eye-catching and nicely made!

I love the shape and adding the little detail to the pocket is just wonderful...
