Another day, another apron.
The day after I gave the messenger bag to Little One’s teacher, her teaching assistant told me how much he liked it. He’s the sort of guy who’s always very helpful and, incidentally, the only male teaching assistant in school.

And now that I’ve found what would make a suitable gift for a guy, another apron was on its way! As it happens, the teaching assistant is a denim fan. Which made my job simpler.
I started with the usual sketch.
I won’t be showing a step-by-step today as it’s made more or less the same way as the last apron. But here are some pictures.

The waist ties …
On the reverse, the seams covered with grosgrain ribbon.

Apron all done! Thought I’d have a bit of a denim fest. Denim apron on denim on denim. Aahh … satisfaction.

Hope it’ll come in handy for those summer barbecues.
