Aprons

My church had it's annual spaghetti supper fundraiser.  I usually make the sauce for the whole dinner and serve in the kitchen during the dinner.  Mr. D works out on the floor serving all the lovely people.  I've been wanting to make aprons for us for quite a while and thought no time was like the present, so I worked up a couple of aprons for us.  Mr. D is a big Star Trek fan as am I so when I found Star Trek fabric at Joanns' I knew what it was screaming to be.  I found dark blue baltic fabric to trim it out in.  He liked it.

I looked for fabric that related to sewing or music but did not see anything I liked so I went with dragons instead.


The pattern I used was Simplicity 2691, a reversible apron.
 

Since I didn't have another fabric I wanted to use on the reverse side, I just used white muslin.  I widened the apron about an inch to an inch and a half and lengthened the apron by about 2 to 3 inches.  Overall I love both aprons and it was something I wanted to do for quite some time.  It also is bringing to mind things I want to do and make for the upcoming holidays.  I have a few friends that like to bake and cook, so this may be a great present as well.

An apron has been on my to-sew list for a long time. These ones look great.
