Pattern: I took apart this bizarre apron (yellow with a green rick rack Christmas tree) that I got at Thriftown and used it as the pattern.
Fabric: The groovy turquoise ones are made from a recycled Ikea bedspread and the red & white ones are from stash fabric.
Sewing time: Around 1.5-2 hours each
The sun came out last week (although it was decidely gone today) and suddenly my crafting fancy turned to sewing. Knitting? Ha! What's that? I, for the time being, am a sewer. In honor of this proclamation, oh and Mother's Day, I turned out these four aprons as gifts for my mom, aunt, and their friends. The ladies loved them. Mission accomplished! (Hey, where's my flight suit and banner?)
Once again, I was reminded of how, although sewing can be fraught with annoyances (did I just cut the fabric going the wrong direction? dang. did I just sew a right side to a wrong side? doh!), it is quick satisfaction. If I put my mind to it, I might be able to move through some of my fabric stash. I can't ever imagine that happening with my yarn, but that's another story altogether. Some projects I have my eye on:
