I joined a swap last month.  I can't remember when the "due date" is for this one, but I have my items ready for the mail.  One project I made is a half apron I just winged.
I have seen some really great aprons on Etsy that I tried to incorporate into this one.  I like a couple of different fabrics, ties that go all the way around so it can be tied in the front, and a look that says it is well constructed and durable.  Here’s what I came up with:

My partner likes pink and brown, so I chose a pink floral for the front of the apron, brown pockets, and a brighter pink waistband and tie.

And I backed it with some nice dark denim that I bought when I first learned how to sew in the hopes that I would sew myself a nice pair of jeans.  I am not making that up.  It is time to use that denim for something else:)
Here are a few photos of me modeling it and taking photos at the same time!

I hope she likes it!
