Amy Butler Domestic Goddess Aprons

.
For Christmas gifts I made two Amy Butler Domestic Goddess Aprons: one for my Mom & one for my sister.  I was a little nervous embarking on this sewing project because I don't really have much experience sewing from a pattern.  I thought it would be much harder than it actually was.  I might even say these aprons were easy to make!  It took me a while but if you follow the directions on the pattern, it's not very hard! 
.
The pattern includes 3 different aprons.  I made the 'pleated bodice full apron'.
.

.
The fabrics I used are all Amy Butler patterns and are from the Midwest Modern 2 Collection.  I really love all of the Amy Butler fabrics!

I thought that I took quite a few 'in progress' photos (always thinking about the blog!) but I can only find a few. . .

Pockets & pleats are finished:

I had a hard time photographing the finished aprons but here are a few:

And here is my cute Mom modeling her apron:

I love how these turned out!  I felt so proud of myself when they were done and I definitely want to spend more time at my sewing machine!

Next up: the Amy Butler weekender bag.  I have the pattern but it's definitely much more complicated than the apron, so it may be a while before I get around to it!

Your apron looks great. Wonderful job, what I can see of the top stitching is perfect. I have not been sewing much but I want to get back to it. Thanks for the inspiration.

Naaw, Mom sure looks cute. A weekender bag?! Hmm, I assume that will be my present for best sister day... The apron looks so nice hanging in my kitchen, can't wait to get cooking with it! Such a nice gift.
