Flirty Apron

I finally finished these aprons for my friend. They were meant to be Christmas presents, but ended up making it in time for Easter. Oh well, at least they are finished.

* If you haven't entered the vinyl giveaway yet it's in my previous post here.

I chose the fabric because she has a red kitchen. The pattern was actually one that she purchased. McCalls MP328. (The number online doesn't match the number on the pattern for some reason.) I couldn't help but change the pattern up a little. Of course, I also made two co-ordinating aprons for her daughters.

I chose the full apron for my friend and the half for her daughters. Instead of doing the top in the coordinating fabric, I made it all the same with the pockets, ties and ruffle coordinating. The pockets I altered by cutting off the part that goes up. The patterns version seemed a little too much to me for this fabric choice. This was a pretty basic pattern to follow and it turned out really cute. Sorry I don't have pictures of her in it. Of course, I recommend picking up that pattern when it's on sale at JoAnns. (I usually wait for the 10 for $10 deal!)

Note the kid's aprons have a different co-ordinating fabric.

I love the flirty look and the color of these ones. This is a perfect gift for a friend that loves to cook!

Cutest aprons ever! I've been wanting to make myself an apron for years but just haven't found quite the right one. I think I might have to go with this. And I have a red kitchen too so this is perfect :) Thanks for the idea!
