This apron will soon be mailed off to snowy Iowa. Isn't it cute?! I hope my friend wears it while making herself sweet birthday cupcakes.
The pattern is from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. It was really simple until I got to the part about sewing on the potholder pocket -- ugh! The advice of notching the fabric to turn under a rounded edge just doesn't work well on the crook of a thumb.
I made a second apron as an xmas present and found that rather than follow the directions, it was simpler to make the pocket first (sewing rights sides together with a piece of linen, then turning it right-side out) and then top-stitch the pocket onto the apron. (Such was the advice of a crafty bird -- thanks little bird!)
