I planned on revealing a new pouch design today to go with the music bag from last week. But…what I’ve created so far has not been exactly what I envisioned. Still needs more work. (a lot more work!) So maybe next week.
I needed something easy-peasy to whip up and when my husband suggested I make him an apron for when he’s cooking dinner (most evenings), I was like “YES!”
And I didn’t even have to design it! Purl Soho is one of my favorite sewing websites. I signed up for their newsletter and they seem to be concentrating on knitting projects now but there are also many free sewing patterns and tutorials on the Projects Page. I had my eye on this Adjustable Apron from Purl Soho for quite some time but really had no reason to make it. I showed it to Terry and he said perfect. He just didn’t want a pocket and he would prefer for the tie to be in the front.
The Adjustable Apron was amazingly easy. I had it finished in one morning. The instructions were so simple to follow.
I made some changes. I used a very lightweight denim rather than the canvas or upholstery-weight fabric. Hey, we live in Florida! It gets hot here and Terry’s usually cooking on the grill ! I increased the length of the cotton webbing for the tie to 150″ so Terry could tie it in the front. I also mitered the corners on the bottom hem. And, of course, left off that pocket.
I think this would really look cute in some of my recycled denim with the pockets from the jeans located in fun places. Maybe that will be my next easy-peasy project!
This was a fun project. It’s inspired me to do another apron–for me, of course! And then I probably need to make some matching pot holders and tea towels. (I think I’m getting burnt out on whole matching bag thing!)
