All Boy (Simplicity 2319)

What? You don't believe me? I promise, this post is all about boys. Really.
Girly pattern? No problem.
Sterling is obsessed with cars.  Actually he loves any vehicle with wheels.  He was with me at JoAnn's last week and spotted this fabric that just so happens to have plenty of cars and trucks on it.  Since he often helps his mother cook, we decided that an apron would be great.  I didn't want to buy an apron pattern (I could totally have made a pattern from scratch if I felt like it)...I already had a pattern that I knew I could adapt.  I used the upper part of Simplicity 2319...and just made it longer, oh, and rounded off the bottom. I didn't bother with the facing/casing - I just cut out a lining fabric and made the whole dang thing reversible...which means that I didn't have to hem it.  I sewed the front and back together (right sides together), leaving about 1 1/2 inch opening on the top and sides for the tie to thread through.  I then topstitched a casing, made a tie and I was done.

Junior Cook's Helper, ready for duty!

 There was also a coordinating reversible quilted fabric. I was able to whip up a library/Sunday bag in about 10 minutes.

This $4 Target tee-shirt received a few appliqued vehicles...again, easy peasy.
