I was looking through my crafting and sewing supplies the other day and came across some fabric scraps that were too big to get rid of, but not really big enough to make anything substantial. Or so I thought. I held up the pieces and pondered how I could create something else from this fabric that I have used so many times before. And then it hit me. An apron.

I’ve been wanting a cute vintage apron to inspire me to bake more. Why not make one from this vintage fabric? So I gave it a shot. Sometimes I get an idea and just want to start and finish it right then and there. This project was like that. I didn’t have a pattern, because, well, I don’t like them. I’d rather make my own directions. This can be a blessing and a curse. Sometimes it works out just fine, and I feel like an engineer, constructing what I want the way I want it. Other times I get really frustrated and create a big blob and wish I had followed someone else’s directions. This apron turned out mostly the way I wanted it, but I think I’ll try again with a different style. Maybe some ruffles next time.

I like how the red thread looks on the off white fabric. Hmmm…maybe I’ll bake something today!
