I am happy to announce that the apron is done! And they're not even here yet! LOL
Yeah, I'm a bit of a procrastinator so I'm often finishing gifts at the last minute but not this time.
Here's a pic of the finished apron with both the pockets on.
Here's a close up of the bottom pocket. I chose to only do lace around the three edges. Around all four looked odd to me (and my girls - 3 sides got 3/3 votes).
The pocket is split down the middle with a line of stitching. In a larger apron I would splint the pocket into 3 but that made the spaces too small in this size.
I used some of my machines fancy stitches for the edges of the ties, the top of the big pocket and the line in the middle of the pocket.
All of the material for this came out of my stash. The lace has been in my stash so long I don't even remember when/where I got it. The kitties were bought for my eldest daughter (who is now 13!) and the back ground fabric came from my favorite source - it's a sheet from a thrift store. Yay for thrifting.
Now to go finish cleaning the house for visiters. Oh! Maybe I should wrap the apron first.
