A Birthday Apron

I can’t believe I’ve already made FOUR of these aprons, but the pattern is so cool, and I know so many people whom I want to have fun cooking.  This one is for a birthday present.  I think this, with some new measuring cups will be a lovely gift, no?

This one is made with fabrics from Amy Butler’s Midwest Modern collection.  Since this blog has a penchant for regional food, why not a penchant for regional fabric/fashion designers, too?   For those interested in the apron pattern, it’s from Vanilla House Designs.  Sewing is worth fitting in the schedule, too.

This apron is reversable, though I didn’t put a pocket on the other side. Here’s a detail shot of the pocket:

The pocket is faced with the same fabric, so there are no raw edges to fray.  To be honest, I don’t think you could put much in this pocket, but it would hold a bottle opener, which I suppose is the perfect accessory if you wear this while entertaining at home.  Can you see yourself wearing this while greeting guests with a small tipple before dinner?

Ok, maybe not, but it’s a glamourous idea.  Perhaps that’s the point.
