Apron by Julia

Julia's BFF's birthday is today, so she made her an apron. Genevieve loves to cook and bake, so an apron was the perfect hand made gift. I shopped the stash with Julia, then she went to town. I didn't see her again until she was wearing the completed apron. I'm really proud of how far she has come as a sewist.

She used this brand new tutorial from Maureen Cracknell Handmade. It is a generous size, so it looks like a skirt in the photo. The focus fabric we pulled first is Philip Jacobs' Waltzing Matilda. Then we chose a couple of coordinating batiks. Genevieve's favorite color is purple.

I'm confident that Julia will have no trouble making the skirts she is planning to wear on vacation this summer. She is inspired by Summer of No Pants and What Would Emma Pillsbury Wear.
