Take 2 of my apron tutorial - I love it! And this time, I'm keeping it for me - wahoo.
I picked the fabric because my kitchen is bright green so I wanted my apron to feel at home.
I was glad that Ucreate picked my Full Apron Tutorial for this months project - it motivated me to finally get around to making an apron for myself.
Um, no, my elbow-pit is not growing curls - it's from this project - guess I should use a background...and I was trying to go a little more "artsy" with this pic - crazy face, color pop - eh?
It was interesting using my own tutorial to make something - of course I altered it a little.
Here's what I changed:
First off, I flipped all the pieces and put them out across the fabric, not down it, so in the original tutorial where it names width and length, I flipped all of those.
I was able to do this because I made the whole apron a little smaller than the original measurements.
I wanted the "boxes" really defined, so mine have spaces inbetween (in a real box pleat they're supposed to touch). See the space??:
Another thing I did differently was the neck straps. I made 2 straps that tie instead of one that connects with velcro. Also, where the straps connect, I slanted them a little instead of having them come straight up:
holiday apron - guess I can put that away..)
