What a super great half apron video. A great beginner project to make and learn how to sew. She takes her time explaining how to make the apron and some really great tips and tricks to make it easier and to make it right. If you keep these tips in mind when making other things you have learned well. The take it slow it is not a race to complete a project is great advice. These aprons make a great gift for that baker in the family and must have some for yourself. Make one for each season or a few so you can change out when washing the other. Great way to use up that leftover fabric and put some away for last minute gifts.Well Done.
