1 1/4 yards Mizzou cotton fabric, about a yard of 1 inch black grosgrain ribbon, a yard and a half of the zebra stripe ribbon, and just over a yard of the pawprint ribbon. McCalls 2272 was the basis for this pattern.
What was your inspiration?
My sister-in-law had favorited a (kind of boring, plain) Mizzou apron on Etsy, because she is a huge Mizzou fan, but I knew she needed something girlier. Stopped off at my Wal-Mart, which luckily still carries fabric, and picked up everything I needed!
What are you most proud of?
I really like how all the trims look together, and I like that the pattern was pretty quick to put together. I also love that, for $12.00 worth of fabric, I had enough for this apron and a scrub hat for my husband!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you have a serger, you can serge the edges of the bib and add whatever trim or ribbon you like on top! Since the cut of the apron is quite plain, you can really have fun with the trimmings!
