Super fast apron

I had a long lunchbreak at the studio yesterday. I can’t say I don’t deserve a sewing break having worked solidly since Easter without a day off. I sent off an important email at 11.15, had a brief moment of elation and weightless-shoulders so packed my bag and headed out for a couple of hours of quality sewing time. I made these (full blog post tomorrow) and this here apron, just in time for the Tie One On challenge. I’ve missed the last few challenges and it’s been frustrating. I really wanted to do a gingham one, but that escaped me. I started, but it didn’t work. This one was a whole lot easier. 45 mins concept to photo. A bit of a dash when I should have been back at the office but it was fun!  I haven’t made an apron for a loooong time.*  Too long. I would have liked to spend longer on this one but time was not on my side today. This week. This year.

And now I’m spending the evening at my desk catching up. ho hum.
*Oh yeah, I made an apron for Sew It Up, which I wear almost everyday. And I made one for the new book, but that’s a secret apron of course.
