It's done, my very first apron! I'm calling it The Happy Apron, because it makes me so happy to look at it. Something about those happy fabrics together. And look: I even played with my double zigzag for a little embellishment.
The gathers were scary, but it actually worked!
Thanks to EllynAnne, the Apron Goddess, for the wonderful book she wrote that started this apron craze in my head! The instructions for the pattern were great, even for a rank beginner like myself.
