I stole away the afternoon in my sewing room trying to get "Ethel" done. Many thanks to those who gave name suggestions! The name "Ethel" is a lovely one, and I do believe it suits her well.
Honestly though, I had no idea that bounding an entire apron in rick rack would mean large quantities of it! I mean l.o.t.s. of it!!! Because rick rack is more expensive than bias tape, I probably won't be making this style all of the time.
But oh yes, the end result is so worth it. Check "Ethel" out for yourself!
