A new month and a new color for my Sew the Rainbow project: Green!
The Project: An Apron – a special gift for a friend
The Inspiration: My good friend Mari! In addition to a love for books, which makes us kindred spirits, Mari also loves to cook. Over on Instagram, Mari was one of five people who signed up to get a surprise Pay it Forward gift sometime this year. Because she loves green, this is her month!
- Fabric: 1 1/2 yards, Swavelle Mill Creek Fabrics in Green and White
- Pattern: Butterick See & Sew Pattern 5125
The Result: I don’t work with patterns very often, but this one was easy to follow. I opted to nix the pocket, because of personal preference, but there is one included in the pattern.
I love that the bottom section of the apron is called a flounce. Every time I read the word in the instructions, I wanted to sing *flounce flounce flounce* – I’m going to see if I can incorporate the word in my everyday vocabulary
Here are a few shots of this bright and fun apron, already on the way to Mari’s mailbox!
I hope that you’re enjoying the Sew the Rainbow project. For June, I’ll be sewing the color Aqua – I hope that you’ll stay tuned for the result!
