An Apron For a Boy

When I asked for y'all's help the other day in designing an apron for a boy, I never expected such an overwhelming response! Not that I didn't think you guys would pull through...but I've never seen so many comments on a blog post confirming that I was WRONG. hehe

Oh well - I heeded everybody's advice, and took out the anemic, lopsided, girly little embroidered "M" on the bib of the apron, and replaced it with another reverse applique, using the skull fabric from the body of the apron. (Thanks, Simone!) It wasn't too hard to do- I took out some of the stitching from the top of the apron, slipped a square of fabric inside, traced an "M" onto the white cloth, sewed around it twice (through all three layers of fabric - can't be helped at this point!) and then cut out the white fabric inside the outline. Voila!

What do you guys think of this?



Much more manly, yes?

(I still need to come up with a better way to photograph these aprons! I know they'd look best on some sort of a dress form, but it's hard to justify a $100 purchase just to make my aprons look good in photographs!)

All packed up and ready to go...
