Hey, I hope everyone had a good Christmas (or whatever you celebrate) season! :D I did. I made it home to my parents' house via Christmas Miracle. My car had been refusing to start.. after a new battery and much touching of random dirty wires, I managed to get it to crank. It made it home.. and then wouldn't start for anything. My AC compressor locked up. I'm so luck -nah, blessed- that this didn't happen when I was hundreds of miles away - or worse, while I was actually driving. My car is all better now, and I was able to spend a very nice Christmas with my family.
This Lace Your Way Through Anything tutorial is for one set of gifts I gave this Christmas season :) My friend, Nicole, has two beautiful little girls. So, I decided the three of them needed matching aprons.
Supplies: For three aprons (one adult, two children), I used about 1 1/2 yards of of muslin.
4x44 - you might need this to be longer
Lace, gather or gather it yourself - I think I gathered 4 yards of lace to fit the edge and maybe 2 feet to fit the pocket
enough extra fabric to make the heart pocket and facing
Lace, gather or gather it yourself - I think I gathered around 3 yards of lace to fit the end and less than 2 feet to fit the pocket.
Next, take your lace and pin it along the edge of your apron body, on the right side!
For the sides of the aprons, I attached the lace with a wide zig. Then, I flipped the lace out, pinned everything into place, and top stitched.
Then, prepare your ties by stitching your long rectangle, folded over, and then turning out and pressing. I attached the band the easy way, center the apron on the band and then stitch them right sides together. Press the seam up.
