Finished Aprons

I finally finished The Emmeline Apron from Sew Liberated.   However, I had to add a large pocket to hold scissors and combs and such for my cosmetologist daughter.  And I spent far too much time fussy cutting the pocket so it exactly matched the apron print.  I think it was time well spent.  My other variation from the pattern design was to use some black/white fabrics from the stash for the top/bottom bodice bands.  The fabrics are Brother Sister Design Studio purchased at Hobby Lobby at a considerable discount. (I didn't even know they sold fabric there until a couple weeks ago!)

The photos above are the 2 sides of one reversible apron and the photos below are of the second apron.  I'm still awaiting the Nikwax to make them water-resistant before they are really finished.

OK...now back to whatever it was that I was sewing before I started the apron project.

Cute, cute aprons--the fabric worked well for them, and the fussy cute pocket is great! You are a nice mom! (now I feel mom peer pressure--my daughter's wanted an apron made for the last couple of years!)

Those are really cute aprons! I'm not familiar with nikwax and looked at their website. What kind do you use! A spray on or wash it?
