Ben’s Apron

Just a little post to show you a cute apron, of which I was especially pleased with the results. I actually made two of these for little boys as Christmas pressy; both who really love farm animals. Although still pretty cute, it differs from the others I’ve made in the past as it is less girly. The fabric I used was Riley Blake’s Farm Fresh; both the farm yard animals on the front and the spots on the reverse and for the pocket on the front (exciting news about this fabric and others coming soon! Ooooh).

Instead of embroidering his name, which I think can also look quite girly, I used Bondaweb to hold the chunky fabric letters in place and used embroidery thread instead to stitch around the edge.

Below is Ben’s apron. The other little lad, Rhys, who I made the apron for, I’m told by his mum, has been wearing his for every activity!
