David has been bugging me to make an apron for him ever since I started my apron project back in – well – September and it’s – ahem- still not quite finished yet.
Anyway, I found this sew easy (pun intended) kid’s apron tutorial online last night after he asked me again for an apron.
It took me less than 2 hours to make the apron. And at least 30 minutes of that was spent trying to remember how to wind the bobbin on my infrequently used sewing machine. I also had a lot of interruptions, like having to explain to David about a million times why he shouldn’t put his fingers near the rapidly moving needle. So someone who knew what they were doing, and didn’t have a curious child to fend off, could make this in less than an hour easily.
Granted it’s completely imperfect and would not win any big purple ribbons at the 4-H fair, but David thinks it’s fantastic. And he thinks I’m fantastic because I made it for him. That’s all the really counts!
