The bias tape is part of the pattern. I couldn't find the color I need in pre-made bias. I had the perfect color in my stash bringing the cost of this beautiful apron to $1.99 for the cost of the pattern.
For the longest time, I didn't know where the box of fabric came from. Recently, I mentioned the apron and fabric to my art teacher, friend Laura. Thunk! (That is me hitting myself in the head.) Of course the fabric fairy was the lady who receives all of the best donations. She was cleaning out the overflow. Thanks Laura for one of the most pleasant surprises ever!
