A dear friend is moving to the other side of the country, and I wanted to give a special going-away gift.
All materials, with the exception of the embroidery pattern and floss, were vintage and source on etsy from various sellers. I planned this apron weeks ago and just wrapped it up today.
I used the pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple sewing, and a Sublime Stitching transfer kit.

I hope you love it as much as I do!

Love this apron!  I have this Lotta's book- did you modify the cafe apron pattern? and where did you find that awesome rick-rack?
