Not long ago my friend Jacqueline commissioned me to make her sweet little girl an apron and when asked if she had any special requests, she gave me the best possible answer "no particular color in mind - let your creative juices flow."
Lil Miss Abigail, the apron recipient, is a book lover. A mini me of her mother, no doubt!
The sewing pattern is a tried and true one that you've seen before (think here, and here), but with a twist. Instead of square pockets, this one has "open book" pockets with fussy cut images from the main fabric for the spines.
Aprons are so fun to make! Why do I forget this? If you know the sewing basics and need a creative fix, make an apron. It will do you good.
Happily, the apron fit Abigail with a little room to grow.
(Embroidered on one pocket is "by ACK" -- for that day when she writes her own book.)
Now, go make an apron ;).
