We Finished!!!

Amanda and Nora came to sew last week and we finished our Aprons! Mine was a little late to wear for Halloween, but I wore if for 2 days just to break it in before I packed it away with the Halloween stuff.

Amanda wanted to learn how to crochet so she can make some cute hats for Nora and herself. So we pulled out the yarn box. It was a MESS!! She found the start of this practice hat and we decided it needs a green stem on it and Nora can wear it as a pumpkin top for next Halloween!

I was really upset with myself about Amanda's apron. As we stood in the store where we were purchasing the fabric and pattern, I read the pattern and it's explanation about needing more fabric for directional prints. Guess what??? At that moment in time my brain was not firing on all cylinders because I didn't put 2 and 2 together and figure out that her fabric was a directional print. Thus, I didn't purchase the extra fabric needed to have the stripes/directional print align properly on her apron. Thus the diagonal pattern on her apron. She insists that she still loves it, but every time I look at it, I'm sad I didn't figure things out sooner!! Oh Well, Live and Learn! We did center the flower on the triangle of her pocket. Isn't it cute?

Don't you LOVE the headless pictures? Well, we were sewing, who gets made up for sewing? Not us! So no heads, sorry! We're going with the Halloween theme a little longer!

I really like the apron made with the design going on the diagonal. I think it adds to it!

Very cute! I would love to make myself an apron. It's only been on my list for a year.
