what's cooking?

I finished my first real sewing project since I was a teen earlier this week. I am comfortable with the basics but my apron provided me with a few challenges - particularly as I was dealing with written instructions, not a pattern to cut out and piece together. 

That said, despite a few imprecations, I'm pleased with the finished product. One error worked out in my favor - the pocket is supposed to be on the right side, but I inadvertently placed it on the left. As I'm a southpaw, this turned out better for me anyhow. 

I think I'll definitely use this pattern again. I have some Dia de Los Muertos fabric that I think would make an awesome looking apron. But first I need to get cracking on the race tutus I've been commissioned to make.
