Clothespin Apron

This apron is made from vintage fabric, bias tape and pattern. According to the pattern, it's a clothespin apron, basically a giant kangaroo style pocket. I inherited the fabric from my grandma. It's 36 inches wide and I still have a few yards left. The apron only required one yard of fabric. I had to make a seam at the bottom of the apron because my fabric is not double-sided. I also added a pleat at the center to get the right width-height proportions.

Isn't it cute? I might be getting on an apron making kick.
