Christmas Catch-Up – The Neapolitan Apron

Diana's Apron Bow

Diana's Apron

I was so busy crafting during the holidays that I didn't take the time to share any of the results.  While it's late, I don't want to miss out on documenting these projects!  This is one of my favorites, an apron for my co-worker & friend Diana who makes the most amazing cakes and is probably one of the most generous people I know.  She's constantly baking for the office, and is the person who made me my Vera Bradley inspired cake for my birthday. 

I wanted to make a combination craft apron/baking apron for her, with lots of pockets so she could keep all of her cake decorating supplies handy.  I used the apron pattern from the Amy Butler "In Stitches" book and modified the pocket.  I learned how to do pleats in this project, and was reminded of how important it is that I follow directions when sewing even when I don't instantly understand how they work.

She loved how it turned out (and so did I) and has already requested that I make one for her daughter so that she doesn't try to steal it.
