I made my first apron a few weeks ago. I had reached a point where I was frustrated with my lack of time to sew and do other creative things so I simply put everything else away and devoted an evening to making this apron. It felt wonderful. The apron turned out pretty good. I started using a pattern from Amy Butler's In Stitches, but then I kind of did my own thing to it in the end. Here are some of the pics Ben took for me.
