In an effort to try and complete some of my "smaller" projects, I decided to work on my Christmas apron.
And... it's taken along time to percolate in the zip-lock bag it was in.
- Fabric and pattern purchased in 2009.
- Shapes traced onto fusible web in 2009.
- Applique fused and stitched onto background in 2014.
- Finally put together a few weeks ago.
To get the shape/size of the actual apron, I traced around the shape of my favourite apron, then I knew it would be a perfect fit and it is.
Stitching this apron was quite a break away from my normal things to do, but the book I got the layout and letters from was so lovely and with many nice Christmas items contained in the pages, that I couldn't help myself. I just had to make it!
I am looking forward to preparing Christmas dinner, wearing my new apron. :)
