On a whim, I bought a copy of In Stitches by Amy Butler. Although it’s full of many wonderful projects, I knew right away that I was going to make the apron. It seemed like the perfect project for getting my toes wet with sewing. After all, it’s just a bunch of rectangles.
The thing practically made itself. I couldn’t believe how easily it went together, especially considering I barely remembered how to thread my sewing machine. I believe the credit is entirely due to Ms. Butler, whose explicit instructions were very easy to follow.
I love this happy little number. It makes me feel like dancing around the kitchen…and hopefully it will inspire me to do more than boil water!
