What cha got cookin?

Had to go to a bridal shower today so I am trying really hard not to make purchases, especially gifts at the last minute, so I made an apron from a thrifted pillowcase, curtains and ric rac. The only thing not thrifted was the thread but that’s been in the stash. πŸ™‚

My photographer is 5 but she is getting pretty good so here is the front while the wind was blowing this morning


And here is the back

There are some definite mods that I will make the next time like instead of just taking the scissors and freehanding an assymetrical line, I may actually draw a line first. πŸ™‚ Also, I would like to work on the side hems and I am still getting my feel for embellishing. There is a fine line between just enough and too much.

Also, I was watching Season 2 reruns of Project Runway, why does Nov. 14th seem so far away??? My daughter was watching them with me and of course I tried to talk during times they were saying things that her ears didn’t need to hear. She was telling me how she will design clothes when she gets like 16 (keep in mind the 16-19 year old range is her target age right now because of some of her cousins). I had to laugh so later when she was in the craft/school room, she climbed up on my stool and pulled out the measuring tape to measure a piece of fabric. She measured accurately and this is just from watching me, it was so cute.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  1. That apron is so cute. You did a great job!! It really looks great.
    My little one (4) likes to mimic us whether it is cooking, cleaning, washing, crafting, knitting, sewing, whatever. Important life work is what it is! BTW, I couldn’t agree more with your comments you left on my blog! Have a good rest of the weekend!

  2. Thanks for the comment. Beautiful improve apron. I have about 10 vintage inspired patterns for aprons that I keep meaning to get around to.

  3. Great results — both the apron and photography. I know how that is. My kids are getting good with the camera/ I crafted last week while watching Project Runway too. Knowing me, I’ll miss it when the new season starts.

  4. Very cute apron. I can’t wait for Project Runway to return! Did you see the new Tim Gunn makeover show? They had Laura on to design a dress for a makeover and she did a fab job of course.

  5. CA-UTE! What is it about aprons that are so dang appealing? I never ever wear them and yet I keep making them!?!

    But I think that the line is a natural curve… a really inspiring idea!

  6. So cute!!!And I love that it is long up front! And what a great 5 year old photographer!!! πŸ™‚

  7. I think you did just fine with the asymetrical part. I like it a bit more crudely done myself. Also, loving the little bag for the 19yo swap partner!

  8. I am one of the ones who sent you my blog on Blog Love, and I decided to check yours out, too. I love it, and you seem like such a fun, inspiring, happy person. You may become one of my regulars! Love the apron!

  9. I really love this apron! I think you did a great job free-handing it. Also, did you sew the onesies in the baby shower post? I know you embellished them, but I wondered if you sewed them as well. Love the craftiness on your site!
