Friday Finish - Chicken Scratch Apron

I finished the apron and am pleased with the result.



I used three different patterns for the waistband, bottom of the skirt, and the pocket.  I stitched the parts together by hand.

Very pretty stitching, Pamela!
Isn’t it satisfying to make something completely by hand!
Don’t you think we just assume using a sewing machine gives the best finish, when it isn’t necessarily needed.

It's superb, and so practical too.

Oh, it is charming! You can't use this for cooking, with the risk of staining it, but it could be a needlework apron, protecting your clothes from thread ends and lint.

Pretty work Pamela and what a difference a touch of chicken scratch makes to gingham.

Ok. That cinches it. I have been debating whether I should machine or hand stitch my next project and I wanted the answer to be hand so thanks!! This is such a lovely apron. The diversity in your stitch pattern made it even more interesting.

That's very cute! I like how you don't just stitch stuff, but more often than not finish it into something useful too.
