A Prince & An Apron

I finished the book tote bag for the Prince and embroidered one of his favorites – dinosaurs. The liner is from a Coca-Cola pillow case that was thrifted for $.50. ๐Ÿ™‚

Prince & his bag

The other day my daughter told me that I needed to clean out my closet when she was asked to retrieve something. Yes, she can be brutally honest. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So, I started taking a serious look at some of the items and this wrap skirt jumped out at me. It was cute on the hanger and sort of an impulse purchase in that I didn’t try it on…well, the back doesn’t wrap far enough around for me to feel comfortable especially if the wind blows. Explanation – it is not a traditional wrap skirt in which there is a full back and the front wraps. So, I upcycled (love that word) it into an apron. The front embroidered piece is from a Martha Stewart curtain panel that I picked up at a yard sale. I did save the other sides to make something else. ๐Ÿ™‚
