Yummy Apron

Another gift for the Gator, this time for her birthday. This one wasn’t about the design, but the yummy, yummy fabric. Couldn’t you just eat it up? It just screams “make an apron out of me!” It’s Just Desserts by Diane Knott for Clothworks, but I can’t find a photo online. I bought it at Jackman’s in Fairview Heights, IL.

There’s nothing special about the apron design – it’s a basic chef’s apron to showcase the fabric, with a ruffle on top. (I’m never doing ruffles again without a ruffler/gatherer foot for my machine. Just so you know. But since I’ve got bunches of patterns that need gathering and ruffles, guess what I’m buying?)

I did cut and pin and sew it very carefully to make the sprinkle row continue on. Because I’m that anal awesome.

My Cabbage Patch Kid, Dorothy Kathryn, models the matching doll apron. Yes, she’s an original from the 80s, and yes, the Wee One does not appreciate her. The Gator adopted my sister’s CPK, though, so Dorothy Kathryn will be a model a lot.

After it was done, I realize the neck loop was way too big (a hint: it fit over my head) so I ended up slicing it in half and quick hemming it before putting it in the mail.

Now I just have to figure out what to do with the extra half yard…. It doesn’t go with my kitchen (though Diane Knott’s Caffeine Cafe does!)
