Happy Birthday Mom! This apron was part 1 of my mom's birthday present. The pattern is actually from Martha Stewart, click here. The template that she provides needs to be printed out and taped together, which is a little bit of a pain, but really not that difficult. Don't worry about getting it taped together perfectly, it's an apron, so there's plenty of fudge room! The pockets on the front were really easy to create, the whole apron panel is just fold up and sewn in place. I did add the checkered stripes on the top and bottom myself, to give it a little more character. The fabric is actually home decor fabric, found at JoAnn's, which is a little thicker than plain cotton.
Today's simple joy is my mom! Thank you for being a great one, have a wonderful day!
