cover up

I made two server aprons today.  One for me, and one for a coworker.  I patterned them off one of these.  The each have three pockets and heavy seams.

One is grey twill with a little guitar patch that I made.

The other is some heavy brown cotton I had left over, with birds appliquéd on from some other fabric I had laying around.

I am quite pleased with myself.  Unfortunately, as with most sewing projects, it took me twice as long as I had anticipated (mostly the ironing, I always forget to factor in the ironing), especially making the long ties for the waist.  But they look great!  Hurrah!  I’m still very much a beginner on the appliqué.  It’s not really hard, but it definitely takes practice and level of seam control with the machine that I just don’t really have yet.
