A litte apron .....

is my final finish for Quarter 1 form my 2016FAL list.
 
This apron was on my list a couple of times last year and I don't know why it didn't get finished!  It really did not take long to attach the neck strap and waist ties. 
 
 
 
It is made from the leg of an old pair of jeans.  The pink trims were scraps I had, the button on the pocket was from my daughter's dressing gown when she was 5 and the neck strap and waist ties were vintage grosgrain ribbon that has sat in my blue/green ribbon box for a long time!  The only new thing was the press fasteners and whilst I could have used buttons I thought these gave it a lovely touch.
 
 
I drafted the pattern from a similar apron my girls already had and made the pocket by backing a square of denim with the pink fabric, turning it and topstitching close to the edge.
 
Needless to say, now that my girls are 9 and 11 this will not fit either of them and that's why there's no model in the photos!
 
I am shortly going to link up all of my finishes for Quarter 1 over at Mrs Sew and Sow be sure to head over and see some of the gorgeous things that have been made so far this year. x
