First Sewing Attempt: Apron

Remember a while back how I said that I wanted to learn how to sew? Well, armed with my Aunt's trusty Kenmore sewing machine and my Mom and Aunt at my side to walk me through the steps, we set out to sew an apron. Mind you, this was supposed to be a simple, "easy" pattern as the package said. Hahahah! I beg to differ.

First off, if you are learning how to sew, and if you are anything like me (excited, focused, etc), you will need a seam ripper! I. used. mine. all. the. time.

Seriously, just when I thought things were going my way, I realized I wasn't sewing all the way through my hem, or my bias tape was slipping off. (Yes, I pinned and pinned and pinned to no avail).

About 20 hours later, (no joke)(ok, maybe a *slight* exaggeration,) I was finished! I couldn't have done it without my Mom and Aunt. The whole process was fun, only because they were doing it with me.





I can't wait to try to make some other things- I am *sew* excited for my newest hobby!

  8. I can totally relate. I have been sewing for 6 months and it still takes me 3 times as long to make something as it should. Your apron turned out GREAT! This is a very impressive first project. Thanks for sharing!

  10. this apron is absolutely adorable! great project to start with. What pattern is this? Mccalls? I can't seem to find an apron I like, but I think I saw something like this just yesterday at Hobby Lobby in the Mccalls, or maybe Simplicity pattern book. Lovely!
