I’m excited to be sharing my craft apron today for the Summer Sewing Contest at Ellison Lane Quilts!
I’m going to be teaching sewing classes this summer and working part-time at a creative co-op called Collective.
I wanted to make an apron to wear while I’m working so that I could keep my cell phone nearby for checking on my kiddos, business cards, a pen, etc.
It needed lots of pockets and apparently ruffles too! I seem to have an addiction to ruffles lately (mostly due to my ruffler foot).
The apron has 8 functional pockets and I designed it so that the criss-cross allows for a variation in depth.
There is one deep enough that I could carry a pair of scissors or a rotary cutter and one shallow enough for a piece of gum.
I added a little apple applique and an embroidered ‘L’ (channeling my inner Laverne & Shirley) and extra long ties so that I could tie in the front.
I look forward to being able to wear it this summer, thank you Jen for the motivation to kick off my summer sewing!
I hope you’ll get out your sewing to-do list and join in the fun. Here are the details for the contest with prizes too!
