What are you most proud of? Several of my friends wanted to make an apron like this so I made this pattern & tutorial. That required making a a second apron so I could get photos. I also had to draw out the pattern and figure out how to get it onto a PDF file. It took a long time to put the tutorial together, but I loved the challenge.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure carefully! It's so easy to make the neck strap too long or too short. I cut it a bit too long on my second apron and then I had to take it apart, trim it, and redo the work.

I want one, I want one, I want one!!! Hmmm..... Not very good with the sewing machine though. Shall have to delegate!

It would be perfect for a pastry chef, wouldn't it? I don't think you'll have any trouble finding a willing person to sew. If I were close I would gladly trade an apron for a box of pretty cupcakes.

Thank you! Aprons are so much fun. They whip up so quickly and you can go crazy with designs.

Oh this is WAY cute! I like it even more than the one I commented on yesterday. And I see there is a pattern and tutorial! OMG!!! I'm so excited! You are incredibly creative and talented. I will definitely be making this one ASAP, and I am still hoping you find time to make patterns for your other aprons as well. I see you do a lot of mug rugs...they are all very cute.

Thank you. I do hope you like the pattern. I'd appreciate your feedback if you make it.
