i'm learning to machine sew since my awesome sister lanikins handed down her old machine to me!

my momma loves to play in the dirt, so every year for mother's day i get her something garden-like (plants, tools, seeds, etc)
this year i tackled the gardening apron from the book One Yard Wonders!

this was a great project for a beginner, not to tricky but i got to do a few things i haven't done before, like pleats, loops and working with bias tape! 

i'm pretty proud of the way it came out, as its only about the fourth thing i've machine sewed!

thanks for looking! Smiley

2 rows of pockets?  Wow! This looks very useful. As a hater of bias tape, you did very well. I'm so proud of my little SpiderMom, all grown up and sewing aprons. Brings a tear to my eye!

You did a really good job, hunny.
