another sassy apron

Can you tell I'm on an apron kick?

Let me tell you about my sewing machine. We've been on the outs for a while. I never could figure out how to keep it from being my worst nightmare, so I stopped using it. Then I got a determination streak and decided it Turns out I wasn't setting it up correctly :)

Now that I realize that I'm not a complete failure, I'm getting more and more comfortable with it and all I want to do is sew. Much to my husband's dismay.

Sorry, love.

The last time, I used a pattern and decided that patterns are for the birds. Could those tissue-thin things BE any more annoying? [Chandler fans, anyone?] This time, I did it myself. Thankyouverymuch. My pattern? An apron I already had!

Lay it on your fabric of choice and cut around it. Do the same thing again on another piece of fabric for the back. You can't tell here, but the back is yellow. Sew the two pieces together, turn it inside out, add some ribbon for the ties and you are done, sir, done!

I even added a cutie little rosette, because that's how I roll.

Do you love it??

Sometimes I like to here to see where I link!
