Heather Bailey’s Daily Spice Apron

For the past few months, I’ve been discouraged with my sewing (which is why I haven’t posted many finished projects lately!). I made a handful of projects varying from handbags to tops and little spring jackets, but none of them turned out correctly: the interfacing didn’t fuse properly, the project too cumbersome in the machine (the Sophia bag), the wrinkles in the fabric were impossible to iron out, or the fit was not at all flattering. Needless to say, I needed an instant gratification project, one where it would prove almost impossible to go wrong.

I mean, how can you mess up an apron? It’s adjustable, doesn’t need to fitted, and is composed of a few simple pieces. I whipped up my apron in about three evenings after I came home from work.
Apron Pockets

I do love the pockets, though. I’ve been wanting to make a craft apron for awhile to hold my marking pencils and scissors for when I’m moving around from room to room pressing and sewing; I always seem to leave them somewhere and then end up searching all over the apartment for where I left them.

Useful for holding sewing tools!

See? Quite handy.

I wish my photos didn’t look so washed out; I updated my OS on my computer and lost Photoshop, and the disc is at my parent’s house. In the meantime, I’ve been using Gimp to edit my photos. Gimp and I do not get along.

    What a lovely pattern. I like the fabric so much, it has this retro touch. Super !

    Beautiful apron – I like the girly shape very much, and from what I see the color is very nice too! I envy those who can actually sew 😀
