Vintage Red Apron

After cleaning and organizing my sad, little kitchen a while back I realized that I don't own a decent apron. I have like 2 aprons my mom gave me, but they are torn and only cover my lap and aren't really practical I usually just let my little one wear it when we bake.
Anywhoo so I decided to just make one myself. Of course I wanted it to be red since I explained in this post to match.  I scored like 2 yards of this cute vintage fabric at Savers for just $1.99! Yep it sooo came home with me!

I kinda just winged it as I went along:

-I cut a square for my chest
-cut a rectangle for my lap
-cut to long straps( one for neck, one for waist ties)
-cut a little square for a pocket
-hemmed all pieces separately
-assembled to my liking

sorry the pix are so fuzzy, my camera needs batteries so i had to use my hubbys camera phone

That was it! I love the print so much! Why do cute aprons make you happy? I don't mind cooking anymore...well not as much;)
