New hobby – Kitchen Aprons

In November, my mother-in-law helped me buy a new sewing machine, a Husquavarna Viking 850 Quilt, and I spent a couple days in December making super cute (if I do say so myself) handmade kitchen aprons for my friends.

I made quite a few aprons, 4 to be exact, here are some close-up pics of the cute ones – I had a hard time figuring out the best way to photograph them. Any ideas?




The recipe I used is a low-waisted School Girl Apron from Vanilla House Designs. Very cute and easy to put together, although it takes time to cut out the material. My favorite part was selecting the fabrics for each person – I also used a feature on my machine to add personalization, which makes it even that much more special!
