This Wednesday’s Work In Progress is a skirt apron–for all the cooking and baking I’m going to be doing…??? (It is sooo hot in Minnesota right now that no one even cares about eating! ) Maybe I will wear this cute little apron while I am stirring the lemonade!
I found this free pattern at my local quilt shop a few weeks ago. Once I saw the polka dot fabric, I knew it was coming home with me! Who doesn’t love polka dots–especially on red!
I could not obtain the pattern for you, but if you Google “free apron patterns” there are many options available online.
TIP: If your pattern calls for interfacing the waistband, replace the interfacing with lightweight batting and free motion quilt it in place.
The result is a much more comfortable waistband–and more importantly, you get to practice one of your favorite free motion quilting motifs! WIN! WIN!
(NOTE–You don’t need to have a backing fabric when you free motion quilt.)
This is the closest I get to garment sewing these days–and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. I think I will look for a few more apron patterns…I need a full apron next time–I’m known to splash the flour around a bit when I bake!
What are YOU working on this week?
