What are you most proud of? I love designing aprons, but the tutorial was much harder for me. I'm not at all sure that everything in it is as clear as it should be, but I'm hoping it isn't too difficult to follow. The pattern is hand drawn, but it doesn't look as awful as I had feared, It wasn't planned, but there are some great shots of my 1951 Singer sewing machine. It's my workhorse and I use it for most of my straight stitch work.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Patience! Designing a pattern and creating a tutorial isn't something you do when rushed for time. As for the sewing - just have fun with fabric and color choices. I used pieces from my quilting scrap stash.

Oh, thank you! If I ever make it again, though, I'll do some minor tweaking to the pattern.
