This fabric was hand-me-down from a friend’s mom. I surged the edges and with the aid of some little clips, it was a curtain in a boy’s bedroom in Winnipeg for over a year. Then it slipped into obscurity, hiding in a box of fabric in another town for a couple of years. It recently resurfaced with a new purpose.
A budding chef needed an apron. An apron that will, no doubt, be borrowed by a few other brothers. I made a very large hem on the bottom so that I will be able to let it down and it will fit them for a long time. There is enough fabric left to make another, so I think I might just make a smaller size for the little brothers who so love to be like the big brothers.
Gabe wasn’t available for a photo shoot at the time I wanted to take pictures so I snagged Zach for the job. Isn’t he cute? His specialties are still crêpes and garlic flat bread.
I’m thinking of making a pattern for this apron so that I remember the size and how I made it…. though I could just always look at it to find that out. But if anyone is interested in the pattern….. I could make one and post a printable (though not to scale!) version here.
