Sewing

I am a woman of many projects, I like to have something to keep me occupied, I love to scrapbook but I've been taking a break from that and have been dabbling in a little sewing of late. The first thing I made was a quiet book and yesterday I made aprons for the girls, and a chefs hat for Kate, because every baker needs a hat!! I must say a big thank-you to Emily, we watched the opening ceremonies at their place and I kinda raided her fabric stash whilst we were there, thanks Emily.



Best thing about the aprons, aside from being good for baking in, last night we had noodles and sauce for dinner, it can be a messy dinner and I made the girls wear their aprons, its like a giant bib!!

Here is my sewing machine, up until now I have been borrowing my sister-in-laws but recently I met this super cute girl at a baby shower (who's name was Claire) and she was saying she just got a new sewing machine and I could have her old one, I took her up on her most generous offer and its just perfect, I love it!!

Simplicity from Joann's, it was an idea that came from their flyer. At first I thought the pattern was overcomplicating things as aprons seem pretty basic but the result is the cute fitted apron and I do really like like. I still have the pattern if you ever want to use it.

Claire, you did such a good job. I am amazed and impressed with your sewing skills. Maybe you could give us more novice sewers a class. And by the way, I can't believe you got hooked up with a free sewing machine! That's awesome! What a nice girl that Claire was . . . I guess all girls named Claire happen to be cool and nice! (wink, wink) Do I seem creepy now because I actually typed out my winks? Ha!

This is such a cute project. Your girls look adorable! And what a great thing for your new friend to give you her old machine. She just earned huge karma points!
