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!!!
