TADA! They are finally done! The Acorn Aprons ~OR~ The Nutter Naprones:
I am not ashamed to say that Kate's apron is sorta based on the pattern for the Dog Dress Apron. But hey, an apron is an apron! I made it so when Kate gets bigger the bib can be changed into a pocket on a waist apron. How's that for EXTRA JUMBO rick-rack?!?!
I tried to go a bit more masculine for Jake and apparently masculine=plain in my book. It is pretty straight forward with three gigantic pockets for boy stuff and lots of room for growth. And let us not forget EXTRA JUMBO rick-rack!
I am very unhappy with the way my apron turned out. But I did learn ALOT. I like the basic design in it's final incarnation, but there are some funky bits that kindly don't show in the picture. I do really like the acorn screen print, a big pat on my back for that one.
I can't wait for next month's theme, as I want a craft apron, but this one isn't it. Hopefully next month will be the same design with better execution.
