My best friend from college (probably the only one that I still talk to with any regularity) asked me to make her an apron for Christmas (I know, it is MAY and I am finally posting about this). She even bought the fabric and brought it to me. I had been wanting to make her an apron for a while, but I was stuck on fabric. We have different tastes in prints and patterns.
There was just enough of the fabric left that I was able to throw together a little table runner with the leftover pieces.
I used some Christmas fabric of mine on the back that coordinated with the light blue binding. I really love the way it turned out. I wanted to keep it.
But that is the great thing about starting a project and knowing it is going to someone...
I really love it.
I didn't have quite enough fabric to make the binding. I cheated and I made half binding, half bias tape. It was a little thinner than normal binding.
And this is all I had left of the binding when I made it all the way around the runner. That is it. From all the fabric she bought me, that is all I had left. I was pretty impressed I was able to turn all of it into something useful.
On to the apron:
I made my own bias tape to go around the apron.
