Another Birthday Present

Sunday Dinner Apron

Sunday Dinner Apron

Here’s a different apron from Vanilla House Designs– the Sunday Dinner Apron.  This is a bit less revealing than the Friday Night Apron, and thus uses slightly more fabric.  The walking foot on my sewing machine made this easier when the bias binding was added, as it was easier to sew through the layers.

I can still use some work on my photography/Photoshop skills to improve my pictures, but this should give you an idea.  There are two pockets on this apron, with the teardrop shaped holes to get things in and out.

Here’s a closeup of the pocket detail- the light blue batik which is the pocket lining is the same large piece that is the lining of the apron skirt.  There is a seam (you can see a bit of it on the left side of the photo, near the edge) which goes around he pocket, sewing the fabric front an lining together, forming the pockets.

I think I will send this apron to my sister as her birthday present, with the pattern (I bought 3 copies), in case she’d like to make another one.

    Have you ever checked out the “Emmeline” apron. I really like it
    but haven’t purchased the pattern yet.
