I am not a big fan of cooking or baking. I do not have the gift of looking in the refrigerator and creating a meal from what is there. I wish I had this gift. My mother and my aunts all possess this gift. I am fascinated and jealous of it. I struggle for new ideas as my creativity does not reach into the kitchen. However, as much as I dislike not knowing what I am doing in the kitchen, I have made it my goal to conquer the beast of cooking and baking. In my quest to find my place in the culinary arts, I did find a love for the apron. It not only protects you from ruining your clothes, but it doubles as a fanny pack! I don't have to search the kitchen for the towel I just had or look for the phone! It all fits on or in the apron. I hate to admit it, but I find myself wearing it most of the day as it helps me through out the house. I used to think my aunt was odd because she always has an apron on (apologies out to my dear aunt). After discovering it's usefulness, I was inspired to make a couple for myself to wear for the holidays as I attempt baking.
I used the Kwik Sew Pattern 3787. This pattern is fun and simple to make. I hope to make a few more aprons as I only have two holiday's represented and a few different patterns I am anxious to try!
