Friday was a big day for me.
Among other things, I did my taxes and I made my very first apron.
My friend Paige started it. She is always posting these great aprons that she either makes or receives in the mail in apron swaps. Finally I couldn't take it anymore and decided I was just going to have to join in on the apronny fun. So, I went to Walmart (I have mentioned that I don't have anywhere else to go, right?) and found an apron pattern that looked both cute and not-too-difficult-for-a-first-timer. Then it sat around on my craft desk for a few weeks.
Then I bought some fabric. Which also sat around on my craft desk. But only for a few days.
Friday night, I thought I'd just cut it out. Then I figured what the heck? I'll start sewing a bit. And then three hours later I was all finished. And I am now the owner of a really fabulous apron.
What do you think? (Since I took this picture, I figured out that I should tighten the neck straps a bit more and it looks better that way. I am too lazy to take another picture. Deal with it.)
The pocket is my favorite part. The button came out of my big bag o' buttons. Always nice when one works with a project so perfectly, isn't it?
Anyway, I knew I'd be hooked. So, I'll be making more. Just need to go fabric shopping...
