Butterfly Apron

Well, it is raining and cold and yucky and I wasn't tired, so I decided to sew an apron tonight while the family is asleep. I've had this fabric for a long time. It is a heavy cotton almost a lightweight canvas in feel. Very stiff. It has butterflies all over it. Didn't use a pattern, but it is for a larger waisted person. The pockets are sewn into/under the waistband and they open from the side rather than from the front. I used vintage white cotton rickrack around the edges which made for a really nice turned finish because it is a large rick rack. Well it is after one in the morning, so I think I'll put clothes in the dryer, check on mom and the girls and go to bed. I hope you are all staying warm and getting lots of hugs!
Thanks for blogging with me tonight, or rather, this morning. Oh, Happy Valentine's Day!

Thank you! It is a heavy weight fabric that should hold up to years of love! This one went to MustangSuzie! I think she needed an apron!
