I’ve had an idea for a cute Valentine’s Day craft project for awhile, but I haven’t had the time to breath life into my design…not until yesterday after work.
I actually started a few days ago by sketching out a couple ideas. I thought about making some totes or random sewn goodies, but the aprons won out. I really wanted to do an apron with a cute, heart-shaped pocket.
I’ve been working really hard on developing my fabric stash (read I can’t stop buying cute fabric), so after choosing my sketch, I had to pick out my colors and fabrics from my ever-growing stash, which was pretty easy.
So, yesterday, there was some cutting and piecing and sewing.
I actually had most of the apron put together yesterday, but sleepiness made me wait until tonight to finish. I almost didn’t do the ruffly edge on the bottom because it seemed kinda complicated, but it turned out ok.
Ta-da! Wow – that heart pocket turned out way bigger than I thought it would! Oh well, it’s still cute. Now I have something Valentines-y to wear to do some Valentines baking!
