Egg Apron

As you may have read in my last post I’ve been working on an egg apron for about a month and a half. I thought it would be super easy. It was up until I got to the pocket part. The apron part is just about 40 rows of half double crochets. I made all 3 rows of pockets per the pattern by Heart Hook Home. Now, I know her pattern is possible…I’ve seen projects using that pattern nevermind that she uses her own pattern and method…but I absolutely could not figure out how to do what she was describing. Ultimately I put it down because I did not have the time nor energy to invest in figuring out what I thought would be a couple nights worth of a project. So the bright yellow and orange yarn sat in my bag staring at me. Finally a couple weeks ago I decided I wanted this apron done (my intention was to give it to my sister-in-law at Easter…that didn’t happen). I decided to make my own pockets and sew them on. It seemed to take forever to sew 16 pockets but its finally done and that’s what is important. 

I hope my sister-in-law likes this. I found after I started the apron that she has 70 chickens. That’s about 50 more than the last count I knew of so she’ll still need a basket or whatever she uses to gather eggs but at least she’ll be super cute while doing it.

Have any of you made these trendy egg aprons?

    This is really cute!! I only need to carry eggs from the fridge to the counter so I don’t think I need one, but i could use a regular kitchen apron! Thanks for giving me the inspiration to try to figure out how to crochet one for myself!! 😀
