We flew back into Chicago Saturday night, so on Sunday I was able to knock out my submission for the latest Tie One On theme: plaid. Of course, I should have done all my catch-up blog reading before my sewing, because then I'd have known that the Tie One On deadline had been pushed back to October 1. But it's fine because Sunday was very crisp and cool and fallish and perfect for making a plaid apron. Plus, now I'm ahead of schedule! On top of things! Et cetera.
I used the Reversible Apron pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing. It was pretty easy and fits pretty well. But next time I'll make the apron strings at the waist each several inches longer. I like them extra long so they can easily tie in front with plenty of string left to spare.
And the reverse side?
Perfect for whipping up some football-watching chili for Adam on fall weekends.
