Friday Night Sew In #5

Friday night was another really fun "Sew In"!
Did you join in the fun? I have to admit, I missed chatting with my buddies during the night....
some of my friends were busy elsewhere, but I did get to finish this fun retro apron for my daughter in law :)
She requested a "big ol butt bow" so I changed the pattern to add that in.
I used Butterick B5474 view A for this apron. I didn't like the way the pattern has you starting the seam binding at the top corner of the apron. I should have started the bias on the side seam so that the top edge of the apron would have a nice smooth corner with no seam and the seam would be hidden on the side. Don't you hate it when your instinct tells you something and you ignore it until later and you're ticked off that you didn't listen to yourself? Oh well. I'll be making a few more of these and I'll do it my way next time.

All in all, she loved it and that's what really matters!


  1. nothing say love like a big ol' butt bow!!
    Great job!!!
    and yes, i was par-taying that night with a non sew crowd.

  2. Love the apron and the colors! They're my fav! I like aprons with the big butt bow... they look naked without them. Great job! :)
