If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know I am a procrastinator. So, it should come as no surprise that I didn’t start thinking about the May/June Tie One On theme, the pocket, until the calendar passed the 25th. I have many ideas – there are so many things you can do with a pocket. Alas, I am short on time. And for once, I was going to let it go and not get all worked up completing a project at the last minute.
Then it dawned on me. I already made three aprons this month that were all about pockets.
These vendor aprons went to Renegade with Jen, Aprill and Meg. I sewed a cotton prints to cotton canvas right sides together on three sides. I turned it right side out and folded one third of the rectangle over so the cotton print side would make a band across the canvas side. I stitched it down along the sides and then stitched dividing lines to make three pockets on each. I added a long skinny patchwork waistband to the top enclosing the raw edges and that was it. Nothing fancy, but it fits the pocket theme.
Of course, I made these a few weeks ago and submitted them at the last minute. Do you think I will ever learn?
