My First Apron Design

This is the tenth apron that I've posted on my blog and this is by far my favorite because for this one, I designed my own pattern!

I finally cut into my lovely Anna Maria, Chocolate Lollipop fabric and designed an apron pattern of my own. I used assorted fat quarters for the front…


…and for the back, I used a sweet polka dot fabric that I found at Jo Ann's that matches perfectly. Love that this is reversible too, don't you?


I'm quite proud of my little apron and plan to make many more. Hopefully even put the pattern together to share with all of you!

In other news, I'm so excited to see that Craft Sanity has posted her podcast with the awesome Amy Butler! I can't wait to listen to it! You should check it out too. I'm sure it will be a great one. Plus there is a great give-away!

Ahhh! I missed a bunch of posts! lol Anyway, I love your apron! The prints are great together. As much as I love knitting, I have to say that fabric stashing is every bit as addictive as yarn stashing...

I hope your Plucky yarn brings your (knitting) mojo back... if not, maybe you should stop by the Midland SnB group some Thursday night! Check it out on the Ravelry group board or email me. :)
