I was hanging out at my mom's the other weekend and I suddenly realized that I've really only made her bags or purses. And of course mother's day was coming up, so I made an apron for her newly redecorated kitchen.
I used the patchwork apron pattern from the book I Heart Patchwork (which I just spotted today that she's selling her signed copies of the book for 25% off!). All of the projects in that book are so fun and it makes it easy to make a personalized gift.
We had recently gotten my mom and dad a new set of dishes, so the apron is the start of a little set of things for her kitchen. Oh, and the fact that I had to use a Christmas bear potholder to take something out of her oven really called me to action.
I added a little hand stitching along the patchwork border and embroidered a little 'm' on the pocket just in case my dad gets confused and thinks it's his apron, haha. But really, the 'm' is for either her first or last name since they both begin with 'm'. The only thing that gave me any trouble was the waistband, I think I had to re-sew it about 3 times before getting it to the point where I was satisfied. Anyway...
Hope you all had a wonderful Mother's day! Glad you like your apron mom.
