The Barista Betty Apron

Seaside, Califor...






I made this apron to protect my clothes from all of the hot milk and espresso that get’s slung around at the coffee shop where I work. I used the two-tone apron design from the Bernina Sewing Republic site and incorporated it into a few other designs I had floating around in my mind.
I used the two tone side panel idea and morphed it into a color-block scallop at the back, and then cut the rest as a solid piece to cover my chest (hot milk spilled on your goodies is no good!) I then incorporated a few extra details like turning the pocket into a coffee mug shape, edging everything with bias tape, scallop stitching my seam edges, and my favorite part, the towel holder. We go through too many paper towels at work drying our hands after each washing so I sewed button holes into all of my towels, and then attach one to the button at my hip to dry my hands on instead.
Green is good!

    Great ideas! First you tried out new techniques or design ideas which gives your apron a unique look and second the attachment of the towel is so green. Way to go!
