I have an apron tutorial posted on Sew, Mama, Sew for their month of hand sewing. They have also posted an introduction in the contributors section. The apron is meant to be for children over seven years of age as it has real long ties that can tie in front on little children and they can carry lots of stuff in the four large pockets it has. It also works nicely as a big persons apron for clothes pins or any thing else you can think to put in large pockets.
If you want to make the above apron get yourself over to Sew Mama Sew and get all the directions .
The apron is hand embroidered but there is a little bit of machine sewing (about 5 mins of that) on it at the waist band which is easily done by hand I just was focusing on the chicken scratch more. So I think it passes as hand sewing and then some as that is what most of it is. Because I made this apron for Sew Mama Sews special hand sewing month I decided I would give it away as a reward for their readers and my readers
Sorry there are rules. It is to hard to do this without rules. Plus some of the rules make it funner for me. I want some funny stories for all my hard work. I got 5 hours of sleep in 3 days working on this
