Inspired By......Prudent Baby Fat Quarter Apron Tute......

My next sewing inspiration also came from Prudent Baby. (http://www.prudentbaby.com/)  I know, that totally surprises you.  Anyways, Jamie (buy her book, http://prudentadvice.com/) posted a "Fat Quarter Apron Tutorial." (http://www.prudentbaby.com/2010/09/fat-quarter-apron-tutorial.html)  SUPER easy and SUPER cute.  Fat quarters are so cheap and even if you do not have a fat quarter you could measure out one of your own. 
So, I emabarked on making a "Fat Quarter Apron" for my sister for her birthday.  I found the cutest material with green and brown tones that reminded me of a peacock.  I made hers out of this.  While my stitching was not the best, I think it turned out good and she said she liked it.  SCORE!! 
Because I enjoyed making it so much and it was so easy and adorable, I made one for the gift exchange at my Mammaws Christmas get-together.  I made it with some zebra striped material I bought.  My mom also paid me to make two for her bosses at work.  (WOW!!  I was paid for sewing......WHAT?!?)  One was made out of the same material I made my sisters out of and the other, out of some Christmas material my mom picked out. 
Unfortuantly, I do not have pictures of any of these.  I am now kicking myself because of this but at the time, I had no idea I would start this blog so, there you go.  Aprons made; Sewing skills improving; HAPPINESS!!!
