The next Zakka project in the book is an apron. It's a cute little thing, but I've never seen the point of a tiddley little thing like that for cooking. Okay for gardening or crafting, but I never wear an apron for either of those. And if I'm cooking I'm going to splash the front of myself for sure. So I decided to make what I've always called a pinafore, rather than an apron.
I used three orphan blocks that were about the right size for the pockets, two reds and a green. The main fabric was a piece that I'd cut down from something else, linen I think. The binding was made up of three different scraps that just fitted perfectly. The only yardage I had to cut into was for the waist straps. It's now hanging in my kitchen and will be used a lot.
