Baby Apron

If any of you follow me on Pinterest, you may have seen that I pinned this free baby apron pattern to my "Things to Make" board a few weeks ago.

What a great idea!  My baby has just started feeding herself, and the regular bibs we have just aren't cutting it.  Since I had some leftover bias tape from the Toy Stroller Makeover, I thought this would be a cinch.  Here's what I ended up with:
It's not perfect, but it does the trick.  A couple of things I learned about this pattern:
I wouldn't recommend using bias tape this small.  It was very difficult to work with, and I wrestled with my machine a lot.  There are still a few little places where I didn't catch enough of the fabric in the tape, and it came out a little bit after I put it in the wash.  It also shrunk quite a bit in the wash, so next time I will cut the pattern a little bit bigger.
Overall, it was great for a free pattern!  I was able to do it all in one afternoon.  I can't wait to try it again with bigger tape, which I think will make things go much faster.

How long did this take to make - start to finish? I just want to know so I can plan accordingly. Thanks!

Hi Karla, sorry it took so long to get back to you. It probably took me about two hours to make this, since I had to unpick things a billion times. It wouldn't take too long (under an hour) if you didn't mess up as much as I did along the way.
