Are you an apron person? Some people find them old fashion, but they can be cute and make great hostess gifts, etc. With Valentines day just around the corner an apron may be a great thing to give your Valentine. You may also want a new one for that Super Bowl game or that nice Easter dinner coming up. I know we just had Christmas and Easter may seem like a ways off, but if you get it done now you'll be all ready!

Here at the Parish we all wear aprons when we are working in the shop and this year will be changing our aprons each quarter. I will be posting the pattern here with a quickie tutorial. For the full directions call the shop and we can set you up! Here's this quarters apron.

It's a 1920's reproduction and has a feminine scalloped edge.

One of the girls made pattern pieces from the pattern. It made it much easier to lay out.

Once I got everything cut out... just need to begin putting the pieces together. I goes pretty quickly.

I first put the pockets and ties together and pinned them to the body.

Then sewed the scalloped border together and attach it to the body. Now just sew, sew, sew!

Once you have all the pieces on, all that is left to do is the top stitching and your done!

Here are a couple other versions, including a child's one. Enjoy! May your bobbin always be full!
