I am almost ready to reopen my Etsy shop! Woo Hoo! I have several aprons made and now I just need to take measurements and actually sit down and get them listed.
Tonight, I'd rather watch TV. There's a movie starring Harry Connick Jr. on Lifetime that I NEED to watch.
Here's a look at what I've accomplished lately on the sewing front.
My favorite, hands down. For this one I took pieces of different patterns and put them together in a way I liked better than either apron on it's own. Does that make me a designer?I love a simple cafe' apron. Pink giraffes! 'Nuff said! A Smurfy apron. My friend Rhonda has the other one that I didn't photograph. I think hers is way cuter...a cafe style apron w/gingham pocket/waist. Not sure if I want to sellthis one or not. There are a few "age spots"... but it IS over made from a sheet that's over 20 years old after all. Thoughts on selling a sheet turned apron? This is a vintage style pattern using 30's reproduction fabrics. I wasn't happy with the gathered waist treatment as shown for this so I gave it a straight(and I think more flattering) waist. LOVE this pattern.This one is SO much cuter in person. My superskinny mannequin does not do it justice at all. There are pockets on the side in a contrasting fabric.And I think you've seen these before. They've been waiting in the wings a while.Now...Harry calls.
