Buckskin Apron

What are you most proud of? How well the whole thing came together with the colors. Everyone really likes it. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take a simple apron pattern, get yourself some dye (hot or cold - I use cold) and depending on the pattern you want (I like mottled) create the colour you want for the apron. I used embroidery thread of the same tone so it would match and give a pleasing look for the design. Always try a sample design first on the fabric to see how it will stitch out. Make your adjustments and then start your design with a tear away stabilizer underneath. I used the black binding to frame the apron. It was fun.
