Violet’s apron (I have abandoned the notion of selling it on etsy) is finally finished! It’s complete, down to the pale pink buttons and vibrant pink trim on the bottom edge.
I am very happy with this, which is only my second-ever sewing project. There are a few spots that are going to irk me, however. I won’t tell you where they are; Mom says I’m probably the only one that will ever notice the flaws. There is one thing I have learned, and that is I need a new presser foot for my sewing machine — possibly a 3/16 piping foot. It was incredibly frustrating for me trying to sew over bulky seams, especially when the bulkiest part was at the beginning of my stitching — it just wouldn’t move! If anyone has any tips for me here, I would be eternally grateful!
Here is Violet wearing her newly finished apron:
And here it is again. I really love the bright pink trim on the bottom:
There is still the adult version that I need to sew, but I have another project that needs to get done this week, before I go on my scrapbooking retreat. More about that coming soon!
