An apron for a Future Mom

The gift was delivered. I can show you now whose is the happy face from the last post, drawn especially for this occasion, by my friend, artist Lenus Dragulelei.

This is an apron I made for a future mom who is a passionate baker. She makes the most delicious and beautiful sourdough bread. I wrote about her a wile ago, but that post is in Romanian. Maybe Google Translate will help a little.
It was quite difficult to sew the appliqued baby. The white fabric unraveled quite easy, but I liked the baby better having these unfinished edges than a smooth, fine line, sewn by hand.

This is the second attempt. First time I secured the edges with a black narrow zigzag stitch. When all the baby parts were sewn I realized that I don't like it at all. Too much black contrasting with the cute little one. It looked like someone who has no idea of sewing struggled to show her best intention.
I thanked once again  the one who invented the seam ripper and I cleaned all up.
Second time I used a simple straight stitch and now everything looks much better. At least I think so.

I kept the colors, the style and of course, the logo used on previous aprons I made for her.
Now I am released. 
All is well when it ends well!
I'm heading to the next project!

Have a beautiful day, my dears!
