Have you seen this pattern, Punch and Cookies by Sew Much Good? Someone at my guild made a couple of these aprons and they were so cute. So I got the pattern and made two aprons (a rare occurrence nowadays, since I barely have time to step into my studio...). Anyway, I just wanted to make a quick project, as Christmas is coming.
This pattern is very easy to follow, as is the photo tutorial on the blog. Since I am not a seamstress, I really appreciate detailed instructions. I liked the manner in which we stitched the neck and waist ties... You ought to check out her other cute patterns! (I think her name is Eva but am not sure, as she signs her posts using "Sew Much Good").
I made two aprons but have not put the flowers on yet:
These aprons are going to my nieces in Brazil. I will ask my sister to take pictures of them wearing the aprons so I can post them here - hangers don't do the aprons justice, and I am sure no amount of money could bribe one of my boys to wear them for better pictures. I hope they like them. It is difficult to make things for teenagers, particularly when you don't see them often and don't know their taste.
Tomorrow I will post pics of a hat I just knitted... Until then,
