Fun and Flirty.

Still working on those aprons. I love this newst one. It's fun and flirty. I just wish I had bought more than just a half yard of each print. But at the time I bought it I had no idea what I would do with it. I just thought it was pretty. It did make a cute apron. Next is a plan to do a bib style apron.

I don't know about you but I do not like to use the store bought patterns. I find myself reluctant to use those tissue paper pattens. And when it comes to clothes making UGH! I just don't wanna do it. I have no problems making items using measurements or cardstock patterns but when it comes to store bought ones I jsut don't wanna do it.There are alot of cute patterns but I don't like to use them. Is that being lazy or just plain crazy? My motto is Dare to be different! I never did do what everyone else was doing and I still don't like to follow the norm.

Can I help Ma?

Trying to work an apron order is a little hard when Miss Ginger decideds it's about naptime and her spot of choice just happens to be my sewing machine. I had to take a break because I just didn't have the heart to disturb her naptime.

A Cover Up

I’ve been on this apron kick the last few days. They take me back to my childhood. I remember visitng my great grandmother and she always wore an apron for cooking,house cleaning and everyday wear. She passed when I was 10yrs old but I can still picture her in her apron.

I scoured the internet and found this tutourial for making a reversable half apron. I set to work and made these up in just a few hours. I love them. The pink and brown one is such a big change for me. I a tomboy and not particularly into girly things but this apron was fun and I can’t wait to make another one.

The green one was my first one. It’s plain and simple but made up quickly. I talked my 9 yr old into modeling for me but he refused to do the pink one. Too girly perhaps? LOL

I will definately be making more of these. I have plans to try a full apron too ut right now I’m having fun with half aprons.

I also joinned the Apronista forum. I’m still learning my way around but having fun while I do so. I hope to be able to join a few apron swaps this some also. Well thats all for now. I’m off to check out some more aprons. Hope you are staying cool and have a nice day.
