Inspired by Flirty Aprons

 A while ago I entered a giveaway for a Flirty Apron – I didn’t win, but I couldn’t get it out of my mind – I loved the fresh lemon color, edge piping,  and the scallops at the bottom – here are the pics from their site:

 When I hosted a kitchen bridal shower I thought the perfect gift was an apron, so I got to work.  This time I happen to use a pattern (like Kate HERE) – McCall’s 5720.
A few alterations:
–I made the neck strap tie around the neck instead of button
–I lengthened the waist tie so it would tie in the front in a big bow
–I scalloped the bottom.  To do this I got out a bowl and traced it onto the bottom edge over and over – it’s not perfect, but it has the look I wanted.
–I used piping along the edges instead of hemming and didn’t use ric rac.

Here’s my scalloped edge – cute, right??

And here I am modeling the masterpiece.  I almost hated to give it away – I now desperately need to make one for myself.  The fabric is from Heather Bailey’s Nicey Jane collection.

So, as most projects go, in the end I probably spent the same amount to make it as I could have just spent to buy the Flirty Apron one.  Oh well.  But I do have lots of scraps of the fabric to use in other projects….
and mine is unique and made with love, right??
