Apron Anxiety Resolved!

Done! It was really difficult to get a picture of the whole thing, so I did the best I could and showed you little swatches here and there. I ended up doing the Wonder Under thing on the floral fabric and cut out various bits and pieces and adhered it to the canvas apron that I had already sprayed with the Adirondack ink. Once I had all the flowers placed and adhered, I broke out the sewing machine and free-stitched the swirls all over it. I sewed a large pocket across the bottom, lined in the striped fabric and sewn up the middle to make two pockets. Then I added the buttons, and viola! Done! Sarah and Olivia contributed by telling me which button I should attach where. :-) Not something I want to do on a regular basis, but I enjoyed the process once I got started. I hope my swap partner likes it!
