Another Monogrammed Half Apron

Sorry for the bad quality photos - I only had time for a quickie photo shoot!
Another monogrammed half apron! This is basically identical to the first one, except the embroidery is a little different. It's very simple, but putting on the monogram adds a little personal touch.
Cut one piece 27" wide x 22" tall (main body)
Cut one piece 27" wide x 3 1/2" tall (white border)
Cut one piece 18" wide x 3 1/2" tall (waistband)
Cut two pieces 30" wide x 4" tall (ties)
These are approximate measurements - you can do it pretty much any way you want to and it really isn't going to make a huge difference.
Follow the directions for a basic half apron, except you will be sewing the border piece to the body horizontally instead of three vertical body pieces. Other than that, the directions are the same. 
I just typed out the letters on Wordpad (equivalent of Word), and then went through the fonts to see what I liked. I wanted it to be fairly simple so that it would be easy to embroider. I am horrible not good at doing "thick-and-thin" embroidery at this point. It takes waayyy too much precision work. The font I used was Calibri Light. It worked pretty good. For tracing, I print out the design on regular paper, tape it to a glass table with a light underneath, tape the fabric to the design, and then trace it with a wash-out marker. It takes a little time, but it works pretty well. 
Have fun!! See the child's apron I made out of this fabric here.
