The Secret Ingredient....

The secret ingredient to a great home cooked meal is...a fabulous full apron! (Cooking lessons might help too!) Our sewing students are perfecting the art of sewing and making some of the most adorable full aprons. Here are a few the options they can choose for their Level 1 full apron.

The left side apron you can learn how to applique on the 
giant ric rac. A great skill to master! The apron on the right 
you will learn how to make a flounce, 
softening the bottom of the apron. Both are darling!

I'm thinking the best part of our job (besides teaching your darling kids) is fabric shopping! We always love when we come across food fabric. This apron has recipes printed all over the bottom skirt of this apron. Fantastic, right? Some skills that are learned in this project are patch pockets, 
how to put in a waistband and elastic casings. 

I am a sucker for Swiss polka dot fabric and ruffles. This apron combines the two! <3 Ruffles are always a big struggle for most sewist. We have three different ways to make ruffles not such a daunting task. We absolutely love this full apron! When ever a student finishes a full apron, we tell them they can now bake us cookies or brownies. 
Maybe one day it will actually work! ;)

Happy Sewing Friends!
