Selfish sewing week: Item 1 – Apron

Hi everyone

Selfish sewing week was last week, and it was all about making some items for yourself for a change ūüôā


(This event was run by imagine gnats and made with moxie).


During selfish sewing week I started 3 items:
3. A fold over clutch* 
(*this pattern is a Michelle Patterns/Keyka Lou design, it is no longer available to purchase as it has been retired)
And if you follow me on¬†Instagram¬†you would know that I¬†finished¬†my first item early last week…a¬†ruffled apron

I enjoyed sewing this pattern (by See Kate Sew). ¬†It¬†wasn’t¬†difficult but it did¬†involve¬†a few¬†techniques¬†that I hadn’t done before – creating a ruffle and adding a pocket, both of which I enjoyed learning and I’m really happy with the end result.
The fabrics I used are all from spotlight, and were purchased late last year/earlier this year (I can’t remember when I bought them :P). ¬†I ended up using 3 different fabrics as I¬†didn’t¬†quite have enough of the main 2 I wanted to use.
I’m really happy I had to use the 3¬†fabrics¬†in the end, as part of the reason I think I love my apron so much is because all the straps are¬†different ūüėÄ
I LOVE the finished product!
I hope you do too (but it¬†isn’t¬†a requirement :P)
More about my other selfish items later…
