Altered Apron for Amy
When my daughter came to town this past week, I decided to make her this quick gift by altering a window curtain panel. I loved the bottom lace, the fabric was stiff, and it looked practically new. As I am a great fan of rummaging through everything at our local thrift store, I am always looking deeper into the stacks of goodies that line the crowded racks. I thought this would make a lovely apron! So, by adding some accent vintage-inspired fabric, and using the pattern that I have had for years I simply shaped the upper part of the fabric. There was just enough material to finish the job. I love the fact that the sides are hemmed, the bottom had that sweet crochet lace, and all I needed to add was the large apple blossom. Fun and easy project to do in a day!
