I haven't sewn in a while, so I decided to make this apron.  (Especially since my husband just built me a sewing cabinet/crafting station!)  The apron is supposed to be a gift, but I might keep it >.<

The pattern is from One Yard Wonders.

Front: 8 Pockets: 2 small pockets, 3 large pockets, 1 medium pocket, and 2 extra large pockets



Back: TARDIS interior theme fabric



Pockets!

My sewing machine foot is having issues and I'm crap at sewing straight lines:



Pocket interior - Interfacing for durability and strength



The pattern I used had me sew the front and back of the apron *before* the pockets.  I didn't notice this design flaw until too late.  However, it *does* provide extra stability to the pockets.  In the future I would probably not sew the front and back together until after the pockets.



I made this bias binding using a bias machine. I only had a single fold tip, so I used it anyway.  This caused an uneven folding of the bias.  Meh....this was the only spot I missed though.

Yay Doctor Who! It looks awesome, I love the fabric on the back. I'd not be able to part with it. XD

Thank you.  I got the fabric on SpoonFlower.  I had gotten 1 fat quarter of this print and a fat quarter of the same print but smaller for a Doctor Who swap I did last year.  I ended up using the smaller print version and this has just been sitting in my stash.  I originally was going to do the back the same fabric as the stripe/bias and then I remembered I had this fabric!  It ended up just the right size.

Also, the blue stripe was originally added because I didn't have enough of the space fabric...but it ended up working out pretty well.
