This is a bad picture of an apron I made upon request. All they wanted was a plain white apron, with 2 large pockets and a red cross. They needed it for a re-enactment type thing.
I offered to make it, as there is nowhere you'd be able to buy something like it. I decided to make it a bit more than basic though. In the picture it looks crooked, but that's due to how I was standing. I really should learn to stand straight! lol.
Anyway, all I did was cut 2 rectangles for the main part, a red stripe for the bottom and 2 red stripes to make the cross, as well as 1 long white white strip for the ties.
I then cut 2 rectangles for pockets and used some scraps to make some internal pockets.
It didn't take long to stich all up and in the end we ended up with 6 pockets.
2 side pockets that go inside the apron.
2 big pockets on the front.
2 pockets in the red cross. 1 for pens and one for little things like band aids etc...
The recipient was so excited. I also made a little bag upon request to match. It just ties onto the side.
Overall I am pretty happy with it.
