Craft Apron

I finished my craft apron! Yeah!

 While I am far from being an accomplished seamstress, I feel very good about how this turned out!  I tried to use a pattern but ran into some glitches that made me change things and just go with what I had.  For one thing, my fabric for my pocket ran length wise so it made a smaller pocket then I had planned.  Also I had originally planned to have a smaller inside pocket for business cards and I somehow sewed that on upside down! Thankfully I am best friends with the seam ripper!  This project might have come out better had I been able to find my pins to hold everything together. Guess I'm buying more at the store for next time!

BUT it is still super cute and it is FUNCTIONAL! It will hold money, cards, pens, and I'm sure my phone! 

I got my lovely fabric from the Stitch Lab.  If you have never been there, you should check it out!!
