sew fun!!

Couldn't help the pun there. What follows is documentation of actual free time. I needed to post it to remind myself that such a thing exists.

Exhibit A is a reversible apron. Exhibit B shows some lightweight baby wraps to be used as a cover-up when nursing or to swaddle a baby in Arizona heat without smothering her.

I LOVE the colors of that apron. It's awesome.

Are you preggers? Just curious...with the girl reference...and all. ;-)

Not pregnant. My sister in AZ just had a baby girl.

Rebecca I am so impressed! Teach me how to make that cute apron. Adorable.

I have so been wanting to make an apron. Well, actually, I've also been looking at the thrift stores without any luck.

Did you use a pattern? I love the idea that it is reversible!

not sure what mandilon means...

Okay, I L-O-V-E that apron. Will you divulge where you found the pattern? Or are you *that* kind of seamstress (I mean the kind that looks at a picture and can duplicate what she sees with a sewing machine)? Free time is just about as foreign to me as it seems to be to you, so I don't know if I'd even be able to make it anyway. Just beautiful!

Nice job! I am about due for a new apron. I was glad when my sister sent me one a few years ago, because I keep ruining my clothes - ha! Did you use a pattern?

You can also take two kitchen towels, sew them perpendicular, and if you overlap them a little, you can sew pockets into them. Add ribbon for the ties around neck and waist. Hard to explain without pictures.

Wow, thanks for all the apron love. I actually just made a pattern from an apron I already have. It's so much easier than you might think, especially if you use bias tape for the ties. I'm not at home now, but when I am, I'll post a bit more about how I made it.
