I was going through some of my old photos, and realized that I never posted this cute sushi apron I made for my BFF’s birthday back in December 2010. Since my blog is sadly low on things I’ve made myself and more on inspiration too often, I wanted to load this on up! I was going for the effect of one of those adorable hostess aprons – just in an unexpected fabric. We both LOVE sushi, so I thought this would be cute when I found this print (and bought WAY too much yardage!).
I didn’t have a pattern for this, just estimated the shape, cut it, added a super-wide black waistband so it would make a huge fluffy bow in the back, and gathered up some folded black fabric with my (then new) gathering foot to trim the hem. The sides are trimmed with (purchased) black extra-wide-double-fold bias tape.
