Apron Strings

It wasn't a string but is was a scrap. Less than a half yard remained after binding the nine patch snowball quilt. I found a polka dot scrap in similar colors. The low contrast between the fabrics worked very well for the apron.

I made this apron like my grandmother did: 35-40 inches wide and 20 inches long; 30 inch ties and 18-20 inch waistband. (Ok, her ties were shorter but I like to wrap and tie in front.) Since these were remnants I made some adjustments. The center panel is french seamed to keep raw edges from showing. And there was just enough to make one pocket.

Fret not; enjoy the day.
