I love making presents best of all.
For John’s “unbirthday”, I decided an apron was needed.
Lacking time to get to a shop that sold patterns, I went to the internet and found this tutorial by Indestructables.
I bought some fabric from the ever-reliable Halifax Borough Market, and off we went.
The pattern, as it turns out, was really easy to follow. Pressing the pieces into shape before starting was a genius move, it saved much faffing later. I’d recommend it to sewing newbies or more experienced sew-ers – I think the adjustable straps / neckline was a very clever move.
I decided to add a pocket, as I’m a clever clogs, and Michaela at the Sewing Box got the posh embroidery machine out for me – the Soup Dragon needed something splendid.
