Yesterday's production. I think the black one is the nicest one so far. So tasteful...
very sophisticated...
I think I want a jacket out of this fabric.
Not my kind of color/print, but I think people will like it.
I didn't like the ink used to print the white on red - too plastic.

Bead fun

I've been trying to make a skull - a bit tricky with the grid - but I think I succeeded here. I sewed them to colored safety pins for that extra-punk look.

Two more

I was working merrily along on these, first the blue then the pumpkin, and I ran out of both colors of thread. I could have gone to WalMart in the middle of the night (open 24 hours!) but I decided to just finish them the next day. The pumpkin print is adorable, even though it is orange. I'm not a fan of orange...

Pumpkins! SOLD

Blue Flowers SOLD!

They will be for sale on Etsy, but first I'm offering them to anyone who is a reader of this blog for a discount - $32, free shipping. Leave a comment and I will get back to you.

Halloween is not all that far away...found this great fabric with bats and just had to make an apron from it. [SOLD!]

Love those green eyes!

Aprons Every Day

I've managed to make one apron every day, and sometimes two. I find if I cut out a bunch at once, then when I'm in the mood to sew, I can zip right through.
Here's two of the same fabric, with different color trim. I think it makes a big difference what color the trim is, but I like them both.
Birdies with pale blue trim

Birdies with black trim
Strawberries and blueberries SOLD!

Hibiscus and monstera leaves SOLD!

Aprons Again

I've been feeling very productive lately, and I'm making more aprons. I like these a lot, especially the one with the black trim. I changed the way I finish the neckline, and I like it much better. The one with the yellow trim and the blue/black/gold ones have the old neckline.

The old style with curved top

New style with skinny ties at neck
