A Simple Apron
It has been really busy at the Huzl house since the new year. I did, however, find some time to make four aprons and sleep pants. First, the apron. You won't believe that I found the material at Walmart. I really liked the way the brown border matched the print. I found this simple apron pattern at Auntie's Attic in Niagara Falls, NY. It's across from the Outlet Malls. First and foremost, I washed the fabric and ironed it without starch or steam. Then, I measured and cut all the material. The longest part of the project was making the straps. I personally like to use a dowl to invert the fabric, and then iron it down to keep its form. Once all of the pieces are ready, It took literally 15 minutes to sew it together.
