a bib apron and a clothespin bag to go with her new house in the country.
Aunt Maggie fell in love with the vintage kitchen curtains in my stash, but there wasn't much fabric for a bib apron, so I asked Rebecca if she had a nice, skimpy apron pattern. She did! It's from her great-grandmother, and it was so fragile and old that I felt compelled to trace it out first before using it.
The instructions assumed I knew a lot more about sewing than I did, so I also took notes as I sewed, just as I would do with a new recipe that I was tinkering with.
I'm definitely planning to sew more of these aprons. So charming with just a yard of fabric, some rick rack, and some bias tape! Might even sew a few for my shop. . .
