Thank you for your sweet comments about my apron as well as my new haircut yesterday. I’ve given up being blonde and was letting the color grow out. I got impatient and had it cut off the other day. I’m going to just be myself in my ripe old years.
Moving on to sewing fun, this is apron month for me. Yesterday was Finny and Donk’s Sewing Adventure apron project. Today it’s The Apronista Vintage Apron mission for April.
There aren’t any vintage fabrics in my stash. So a trip to Jo-Ann’s yet again netted me materials I felt had a bit of an old-fashioned look to them.
The McCall’s pattern I used is a replica of a vintage pattern.
And here is the result of my endeavors. I really think it’s a cute apron and all the binding was good practice for me as I’m trying to improve in that area. The apron has been added to my Special Olympics donation stockpile for their fund-raising event.
Speaking of sewing aprons, Lyn on The Apronista forum mentioned Jay Gilbertson’s book Moon Over Madeline Island last week so I ordered it. It is the story of two best friends who begin a new life as entrepreneurs sewing aprons on an island in northern Wisconsin (Lake Superior). Naturally there’s more to the tale, but I’ve not read it yet. Here’s the author’s web site.
