Apron number 1...It's Just Ducky!

As you may know, I teach 1st grade. I'm Mrs. Anderson and those little souls are my "ducklings". My classroom is everything duck. I have rubber ducks all over the place. I give them each a duck for their birthday. I even have an adorable, red, clawfooted, bathtub in my classroom where the "duckling of the week" gets to spend time reading and hanging out! I love it. I actually maintain another blog all about my experiences in the classroom throughout the year. You can find it at .

Which brings me to my first featured apron just like I promised. Every teacher knows how important pockets are! So, in thinking about my school apron, I knew I needed pockets. I needed ducks. I needed ruffles. And, I needed yellow. So, here you teacher apron for 2010-2011!

Look at those legs on that girl!
Thanks for modeling it Melissa Bee Bop Boop

I used the pattern for the Fruit Tart apron in the book A is For Apron.
Rather than putting bias tape around the outside, I put a large ruffle. I also added giant
ricrac above the pockets.
The original pattern had one big pocket but I needed more!!
So, I added some lines to make four pockets.
It is very cute IRL.

Pardon the blur...but, I kind of like it.

Ya done good! I like it!! And I like the additions you made to the pattern. I agree, pockets are a necessity and I think large rick rack is just plain awesome. Rick rack was one of those things that never should have gone out. Glad it's back! And in an even bigger way!!
