Apron for Cresy

Growing up in my family, we had a Christmas tradition of making homemade gifts for each other. A month or two before Christmas we would draw names and then make a homemade gift for that person. After a few years, we started a rotation. My sister had drawn my Padre's name for the past 3 years and he is one of the hardest ones. So the rotation began and it continues today.

Crescent asked for an apron for her homemade gift. I set about searching my boxes to find some cute fabric that I had to make the perfect apron. I had bought an apron pattern before when I made an apron for Ryan's mom a few years ago. The apron for her turned out okay, but the pattern was not the best. The binding along the edge was done in several strips so there ended up being layers of fabric at the top corners of the apron.

I learned my lesson. This time, I made the ties, neck loop and edges one continuous strip of binding.
