Welcome! Kelly and I are co hosting a sewing party today! I hope you will join in the fun! Would you like to participate? Good news, you still can! Head over to Kelly's to catch all the details.
We're sewing from 1-5 today! My word was tranquil. I decided that I am most tranquil when I am creating something. So, I am going to sew a half apron for myself that I can wear when I am baking. I really like to bake or cook when I am a bit stressed.
Here are my fabrics:
Aren't they cute? I will tell you what wasn't so cute, when I went to cut them today I realized they shop lady that cut them was a bit stingy. So all of my measurements are a bit off. The straps are a bit narrower. The ruffles a bit shorter. Uggh. I will make a note on the pattern to buy a little bit more next time. It would have been okay had she cut straight, but her cuts were very slanted and wasted 1/2 inch to an inch of material. I was a bit disappointed to learn that. But, I am tranquil today, right? So I am moving on with it.
For you pattern junkies, this pattern is called French Flea Market Apron by Busy Bee Quilt Designs. You can find it at the link.
Okay, so I have a few things left to wrap up before I start to sew. I will come check out what you've been working on this afternoon. Kelly has the Mister Linky up. So head on over there an link yourself up!
A big thanks to Kelly for all of the work she will put in today. She sure makes it fun to be a community of sewers, doesn't she?
