We did this kitchen shower gift using the Classic font in a bright pink; it really shows up on the lime green apron.
Just for fun we added a few buttons on the top of the pocket, using the #18 foot. It is not a foot to use on one of my dresses in a delicate batiste, but it was quick and easy on the apron which is a heavier cotton. The middle finger in the foot adds some play in the thread, giving a little shank as you button your button. I could have used another open toe foot for this task, since the button was simply decorative. And I am kind of thinking apron strings may have gotten a bad rap through the years. I might have sung along with Helen Reddy in the seventies, I am Woman, Hear Me Roar but this symbol of motherhood and family connections is a wonderful thing!
