Working on my Kitchen Swap Gift -- an Apron

Yesterday in the mail I received all the pertinent information I would need for participation in the Kitchen Swap I mentioned here not long ago. I really do enjoy swaps and have had a good experience with each one I have entered so far. This is my first Kitchen Swap though, so I was looking for some ideas for what I could make for my partner, besides a few handmade cotton dishcloths, of course! I came across Lucy's website called My Byrd House, and her idea for making an apron from the leg of an old pair of jeans. I just so happen to have a whole shelf full of old jeans that I was going to use to make a quilt, but I think I can spare one leg for an experiment.

I'm planning to use fabric from my stash to make bias binding, just as I did in this tutorial, and coordinating fabric for a front pocket.

I'll let you know how it comes out!

Happy Stitching!

  • I just finished writing a post on aprons that will run on Friday.
    Great minds? :)

  • Oh My Goodness! I don't usually comment on my own posts, but I just have to pop in here real quick and say that this apron is turning out just so darn cute, I can hardly stand it! I should have it finished later tonight and pictures posted tomorrow.

    I'll be making more than one of these, that's for sure!
