A Birthday Present
I'm not sure if it is acceptable to make the pockets run in a different direction than the main material. However, I'm going to use my creative license card to get away with it. I just like the contrast and personally I think it works just fine. Did you see what I just did there? I broke outside that little glass box that people like to stay safely tucked inside of!
So this apron is going to be a birthday gift for a friend of mine that I work with. He is a cook at the restaurant that I work at so I figured an apron would be a fitting gift. Not to mention, nothing says happy birthday like a hand-made gift.
The pattern was by McCall's (M9269) and comes in an adult and child size along with a pattern for oven mitts in both sizes. I think I'm going to have some fun with these aprons. Let's face it, there are an infinite number of ways to make these customizable with fabrics, iron-on designs, monographs, etc. The fabric was from Wal-Mart, where you can easily find the pattern as well.
