One thing we love about any good sewing book are the projects that we never would have thought up on our own. This darling half-apron is made from an old pillowcase. To save time, you’ll use the original hem from the pillowcase as the bottom hem of the apron. A log cabin self-lined pocket adds graphic punch to the finished piece and gives you a spot to stash a little something. The project is perfect for beginners, but it will definitely help to have a bit of practice under your belt. A nice feature to all the patterns in this book is the “techniques used” section at the beginning of each pattern. Before you get started, you can self-check to make sure you’re ready to tackle the project. The pattern offers two different completed versions to give you inspiration in selecting your own fabric. All in all, a very sweet project that will take just one afternoon.
In response to the almost overwhelming comments we’ve received this week, we’ll be giving away two signed copies of Susan’s book. Keep up the good commenting!
