This week’s Sew and Tell is an apron that I’m giving away on my other blog as part of a virtual cookie swap I’m hosting.
In the past, I haven’t been a huge apron fan. I like the concept of an apron, but the neck straps always bother me so I can’t wear them for more than 15 or 20 minutes. I recently saw a pattern in a shop for a criss-cross back apron and I ran home to make my own version. Now don’t worry – I didn’t rip off the whole apron pattern. The one I saw was quite frilly and girly. I prefer basic, good-for-workin’ aprons.
The one I came up with is a plain front, reversible, criss-cross backed version – and I love it. It is hands down the most comfortable apron I’ve ever owned! It took me less than an hour to whip one up – and then I had some time so I made another one to giveaway on my food blog.
Here’s a view of the front…
…and a view of the back. The straps are attached at the top and then slide through loops at the waist. They can tie in back like this – or wrap around and tie in the front.
If you want one of your own, you can go enter the giveaway to win it!
