Short Pleated Apron

I have been very busy with cooking and sewing projects so I have a lot to fill you in on!  You will hopefully be seeing a flurry of posts from me in the next few days.

First up is this cute apron I made for my Grandma.  When she asked for an apron for Christmas this year, I jumped at the chance to make her one!

The pattern comes from Amy Butler’s book In Stitches.  It’s a great pattern!  It is pretty quick to make and has some wonderful little details.

I love that the apron is pleated instead of gathered:

It has a cute little pocket:

And I love this little pleat where the tie meets the waistband:

I had to give up on a couple of the sewing gifts I had planned to make this year because I just ran out of time.  The fabric for these items is already cut out, so soon after Christmas I hope to sew them up and then I will have a couple of gifts ready to go!
