On Jan 11, I post pictures of material for future projects. Saturday afternoon, I finished the one for my great niece, Olivia. These are the prints I used.
To make the straps, I cut long strips of fabric 2 ½ inches wide. With right sides together, I sewed the strips in half on the long side. To turn them right side out, I used a nifty little gadget my husband made me when my girls were little.
My husband cut plumbing conduit in 12” pieces.
|Then cut the bottom half of a wire hanger off, shaped one end into a little hook.|
|I place the material tube on the conduit.|
|Slide the wire hook inside the conduit until the hook is sticking out the other end.|
|Grab the material with the hook and pull the material through the center of the conduit.|
|The tube is now right side out. I can now straighten and press the tube flat. I sew close to the edges of the strap to keep it flat.|
|Back of the finished apron.|
|Front of finished apron|
|And of course my signature on the front and back.|
My sister-in-law, Denise, posted this picture of her grand-daughter, Olivia, with the apron on. Judging by the smile on her face, I think she liked it.
Happy Reading !
