I made something beautiful. Finished it this morning in fact. It’s a gathering apron made from a reproduction of a vintage pattern. The pattern instructions turned out to be rather spotty in many places listing the wrong number of eyelets, not giving a length for bias tape and asking me to do things/giving options that couldn’t work together. The idea was simple enough though and I’m pleased with the results. Unfortunately, it is not for me, rather it is a gift for a friend. Not very selfish. I’m going to try again though with a Noodlehead 241 Tote. I’ve washed and ironed the fabric and printed and cut out the pattern pieces. Let’s hope my next sewing day is a selfish success.
