Hi folks,
Ta Da! I finished my Seamstress Apron -- I love this pattern!!! The front pockets are slanted so that when you sit, the items inside won't poke you. I made it out of (a) the apple fabric was from my stash (b) the dark green was from a repurposed sheet (c) the backing and inside of pockets were from a repurposed shirt. I found the pattern
here (aka myapple.etsy.com, aka craftapple creations). I really had fun making this! There are six pockets in front, then two large ones (one of which I have my hand in= ) behind those (where I will heretofore put the instructions of the project I'm currently working on so I always know where they are!). I made some African Pants from the same green sheet which I need to hem up, and when I'm through I'll snap a pic and post that too. = } Deb

Deb, it looks great! That is definitely the best apple fabric I have ever seen - not too cutesy and not too country, but still apples! You did a nice job and I'm glad you like it!

I commented on wardrobe refashion, too, but thought I'd put it here on your blog as well. :o) Now go sew!
