Today I asked Craig to photograph me in my apron so I can share my sewing with you.
I made two Psychedelic Squares aprons assembly-line-style and gave one to my mom for her birthday. My little brother is modeling it here (such a good sport!):
I agree with the reviews on Amazon.com; I’m not an experienced sewer and even I can see ways to make this apron a little more polished the next go-round. (There WILL be more aprons!) With a knitting pattern, it’s pretty common for me to seek out errata before casting on, but I didn’t think of that with this book. I should have checked Lark’s website, because there’s quite the list of errata. I thought this pattern seemed a bit small and kept finding little issues with it – turns out it was supposed to be enlarged at 450% rather than 400%. Nonetheless, I like the book and the finished aprons! After all, they are aprons; it’s only a matter of time before they’re covered in grease and flour anyway.
