This morning I put together a quick little sewing project, the first of two aprons in February. I’m so excited about it!
This dish towel apron was extremely simple, but allowed me to practice winding my bobbin and threading my machine again. If I could do it over again, I would have made this my first project. It’s absolutely fail-proof!
The instructions came from Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts. You can also find them online here. Because there is no hemming needed, this sewing project was a great opportunity to practice basic skills. Plus, I’ll be mailing it to my favorite baker (little sister KTK) soon, so I didn’t even bother ironing. Nice, right?
Next on my schedule is a much more complex baker’s apron that may or may not get sent to the other little sister, depending on whether it is usable when I’m said and done! The fabric is cut and the machine is re-threaded with matching thread. I hope to accomplish the project next weekend!
