I know today is not Thursday but …. I have been working on something for you and I would have had it done by Thursday but I got my hair colored…AND… I had an extra Praise & Worship practice on Thursday night. It was a long day!
Today’s tutorial trail comes from Aesthetic Nest. Anneliese has created a wonderful tutorial for a Reversible Fat Quarter Apron. I found this tutorial on Pinterest and promptly went over to Aesthetic Nest and was smitten by this tutorial. I had to do it right away, plus my niece’s birthday is on the first. I really had not choice but to attempt this super cute apron.
Let’s see the results:
- How long did it take? I was done in about two hours. This is the quickest tutorial I have done. I was really surprised how fast it went together.
- Was it easy to follow? This tutorial was simple to follow! There are lots of pictures and detailed instructions. I did alot of first here…First time I made a buttonhole, first time I sewed on a button and first time I used Ric Rac Trim. Let me just say, all three were so much easier than I thought! I am seriously thinking about taking some pattern classes soon because of this tutorial.
- Do you have any tips? I suggest you go through your fat quarter stash and make something fun and colorful for that sweet girl in your life! She deserves this apron! ;0) For the record, I could not find ribbon at my LQS that was suitable for the apron so I made some bias tape. I made three, 3 inch by 18 inch strips folding them into double folded bias tape. I also could not find any pom pom trim, so I just added some ric rac in it’s place.
- Would you make it again? I would totally make this again! I am teaching a series of summer classes at Fabricate Studios and I think I will need some aprons on hand for those messy moments. if you live in the Atlanta area, I hope you will let your baby get crafty with us!
Alright now let’s get to the best part! The pictures:
I have one more thing to show you! My hair! I absolutely love the color…something fresh for spring:
