Last in the long line of Christmas gifts is this apron that I made for my MIL. It is part of a set that included a handmade soap mold made by Mitch. Donna has for the last several years been working toward a candlemaking business, and has recently been experimenting with soaps and other toiletries. Her website is here - Big Art Candles. She makes wonderfully fragranced soy candles for a fraction of what you'd pay for a Yankee Candle - and so much better!!
Butterick 6567 and even bought the fabric himself, although I did help with the selection. The pattern is a nice basic apron pattern. It has good coverage both top and bottom, which was one of the reasons he chose it. Soap and candlemaking can be messy! It also has simple enough lines that it would play nicely with the fabric we chose, which is oilcloth (purchased at FFC). We needed something that would be impervious to the waxes she uses. The fact that it comes in cute prints didn't hurt!
