You see, even after suffering two strokes and losing partial control in her right arm and hand, Mum kept sewing, knitting, embroidering and crocheting. The things she produced were not as neat and delicate as before the strokes and she complained a lot at times. But with time passing by, Mum learnt to simply enjoy the process and ignore the crooked lines and stitches, but it was not easy.
Well, I have made two aprons for little girls copying my Mum's pattern. One piece apron with a very narrow bias binding and a pocket. I didn't add many details for two reasons. One - I wanted to keep the style very close to Mum's original pattern and two - Belle & Boo fabrics are just pretty on its own, without any extra details. I think so anyway.
The aprons come in small gift bags with pretty pictures and ribbon ties. Great for storing aprons or maybe some cookie cutters.
I think Mum would've loved the aprons for Little Helpers I've made and would've been surprised to see me being so patient and persistent with sewing.
Happy sewing everybody! Larisa xo
