TGIFF: Farmgirl Apron

7:00:00 AM

A (long!) while back a friend asked me to make her an apron using this tutorial out of an old pair of her jeans.

With the move to the new house, and then the water seeping through our basement walls and into my sewing space this Spring/Summer, I hate to admit it but her project got put to the side.

Well, it's FINALLY done. And I think it looks great! I hope she loves it.

The cotton trim is a Lotta Jansdotter print, chosen by the recipient.

It was a lot of fun to do something non-quilty for a few hours!
