Daily Spice Halter Apron

Those of you who know me, know that I'm not very original. I love to make things, but I never have an idea of my own. I am a pretty good copycat, though. Once again, I stole an idea from Char. If you haven't ever looked at her site Crap I've Made, click on the link and go check it out! She made this really cute apron, and I loved it! It's the Daily Spice Halter Apron by Heather Bailey. I decided I wanted one of my own, but I feel guilty always asking her for help, so I decided to attempt this one on my own.

I have made things on my own before...things like quilts, pillows, curtains, etc. Things that don't require a pattern. This would be my first endeavor at using a pattern. I bought the pattern and fabric at Material Girls (which is the cutest fabric store I have ever been in), and brought it all home to begin my solo adventure.I actually did it! The hardest part was tracing the pattern onto butcher paper, and then cutting everything out. (I traced it so I didn't have to cut the master pattern, and I used butcher paper because I'm ghetto and didn't have tissue paper). Once all of that was done, it went together pretty quickly. It actually would have been a lot faster, except I was second-guessing myself EVERY step of the way, so I would read and reread and reread the directions before I did anything. I'm actually really proud of myself for being able to follow a pattern and make something on my own. If I can do it, then anyone can!!

Since I managed to do it, we decided to do aprons for our monthly sewing group. People could do either this apron, or apron in an hour.We had a really good turnout and people did both aprons. However, these two are some of my favorite from the evening:
