This is the birthday present I gave my mum a few weeks ago.
She really wanted a nice new apron after I made one for my brothers girlfriend birthday but to use the pattern of her old well loved holey apron.
I must admit I got a bit carried away fabric shopping! The butterfly fabric came from John Lewis and is from the Cocoon range. The dotty fabric was from the market and I bought pre-made bias binding as this was only my second time using it. I also had a play with piping using string and the bias binding,
I am so pleased with it, I wish I could have kept it for myself!!
1m butterfly cotton
0.5m spotty cotton
String for piping
Pattern of the Week
The oversized shape has a cool bell shaped silhouette with a wide body and fitted sleeves
