Minnie Mouse style Apron

My Son asked if I would make a Minnie Mouse inspired apron for his best friend's wife.  I'm always up for a challenge.  I ordered the fabric online and then modified pieces of several patterns to create my own pattern for this polka dot apron.

I bought trim at Joann.

 It took about one full day to create the pattern and sew the apron.

It seemed to plain with just red and white.  I went back to Joann and purchased yellow felt.  We had just bought a set of Mickey Mouse cookie cutters so I traced the hand, cut two pieces and sewed them together by hand using the blanket stitch.  Then I sewed a pin back onto it.  Makes a cute removable "brooch."

Of course, the black T-shirt sets off all the red, makes it really pop!
Thanks for checking out my new creation.  Maybe I will make another or use a different print for this 50's inspired pattern.  Thanks Walt!
