I found these fat quarter packs at Jo-Anns fabric a few weeks ago. I just loved the print it, I found it reminiscent of June Cleaver. I wanted an apron so badly made with it. I caught a good sale a while back and was thrilled to take these home.
Since I was using fat quarters at 18”x21” I wanted to make sure that I made the side hems as small as possible. I used a ribbon to encase the edges. I love how this turned out . I had never tried it before I think I did it well
after attaching to the right side of the fabric as close to the edge as possible I flipped it over pinned it down to the wrong side and stitched it along as straight as possible
I really like to put 2 rows of lace usually contrasting on my skirts and aprons . it adds so much with so little I stagger my lace a little depending on the width of my lace
I am very happy with the end result. Im proud that Iwas successful in a new technique I will try ribbon edges more often especially when conserving the size of fabric
I know this wasn’t a tutoria’l but if anyone has any questions I will try my best to answer them
