More of what I did on my Bloggy Break

In addition to shopping, movie watching, disc golf and making the top, I did some sewing whilst on my bloggy break last week. I whipped up this little craft apron. This was my first try at this type of apron, and I sort of made it up as I went along. I think it'd be nice to wear while crafting of course, but also perfect for vendors at craft shows for keeping up w/money and such with it's deep pockets. AND since it incorporates gingham(and if I don't get anything else made), I can use it for the next Tie One On project.

I also made this cherry apron as a special request. If it weren't a size small and weren't for someone else, I'd be sooo tempted to keep it! Luckily, I have one more yard of this cherry print fabric! I lined this one, too. Not nearly as tricky as I thought lining would be!

And THIS I have to share with you, my crafty friends. I discovered it at the last Block of the Month meeting. Incidentally, this is my Churn Dash block...and no I haven't warmed up to these fabrics yet.The shop owner always shows off her newest fabrics and products during BOTM. This month, she had these awesome kits for cell phone bags(also great for ipods, ID, etc.). The kit uses pre-printed fusible web. You simply iron it to your fabric, fold, sew, and flip...and there you have it! They are so easy to make it almost feels like you are cheating! I added the little clip on this one to use it with a purse that has rings on the strap. I love making them! I plan to make one with a loooong strap to use to carry my passport while in Europe.

You can buy the kits online at QuiltSmart. You know you want one!

And on a completely unrelated note...we're getting Dish TV today! WooHoo! It's been two years since I've have more than five channels and a clear signal. This is cause for celebration y'all!

Both aprons are so great! I'm thinking of faking my death so I can collect the insurance money and buy something from your Etsy shop!
