Rockin’ the apron project

Fierce apron!

How’s this for a “fierce” sewing project? Delaney’s grandma recently gave her a sewing machine as a gift, and she has been taking lessons with me for the past few weeks. This Four Corners apron is only her second sewing project ever, yet she managed to complete this UH-dorable apron for her grandma in just 4 hours. I am telling you, this girl knows how to stay on task!

My young sewing students constantly amaze me with their creativity and focus. Delaney has definite ideas about the projects she wants to make, and when she is in a lesson she is all business. She has a nice eye for design—I love her apron fabric and pattern choice—and you ought to see the cute Halloween napkins she is also working on. I just get a total kick out of working with her, and can’t wait to see what else she is going to sew. Go Delaney!

Happy sewing!
