My Pattern Review – Published Today!
I volunteered to review a pattern, and I was assigned the Lola Apron by Sew Liberated. I’m beginning to think a girl can never have enough aprons, kind of like bags.
It’s a pretty and feminine apron that almost feels like wearing a dress. I had a piece of the Freshcut fabric by Heather Bailey in my stash that was big enough for this pattern. Luckily it matched the curtains and tablecloth I made earlier this summer. (I like things that match!)
One of the things I like best about this apron design was the use of bias tape. I have not worked with bias tape very much, and I really didn’t know what to expect. I followed the directions carefully, and came out with great success. I will definitely find ways to use bias tape more and felt quite challenged by this pattern.
One of my favorite blogs, websites and sewing references is the Sew,Mama,Sew blog, so I was honored and super excited that they assigned a sewing project to me. Thanks Beth and Kristen for the opportunity!
