dilemma. There was not enough blue fabric to make a blue apron. Ack! So I had to rethink the apron.
I had a ton of green. Of course, after deciding upon the green, I realized that the green fabric had already been used to back my niece's I Spy quilt.
I went ahead with it anyway. I can always make a set of better matching aprons sometime in the future (if they desire). I have this pattern, which is kind of weird with those bloom pockets, but I've always liked it.
Anyhow, I used a child-size pattern from The Perfect Apron pattern book. It looked way too small, but I tried it on my girl and it was a perfect fit. Phew.
I used the blue as the ruffle and as a micro pocket. I had to piece the ruffle strip together, because I did not have enough length for one straight cut.
I guess I could have used yellow bias binding to match her mom's but I was smitten with this check binding. It wasn't the right size for the bias binding straps, so I just used it to accent the apron at the top and along the yellow pocket.
