Although it doesn't seem like it, I have been sewing quite a bit around here. I just can't tell you about it. Well. I can tell you about one project.
My friend Jaclyn had a bridal shower last weekend, I couldn't go because I had another shower to go to (more on that later). For her shower I made her an apron. I've decided that aprons are the best bridal shower gift ever and will make one to give to every bride I know. I made one last year for Sammy, one for Meera, and I also made one for my friend Heather for her shower, which was in April, but I forgot to take a picture...there was a cute baby at the shower and I was a little distracted.
Here is a picture of Jaclyn's apron. Isn't she adorable? I used an apron that I already had to get the basic size and shape. I really wanted to have white bias tape for an accent, but I didn't have any and didn't feel like driving 30+ minutes to Joann's, so I just used some cream colored fabric cut into strips and made my own bias tape. I think it turned out even better than just white bias tape would have.I love when that happens.
I want to modify the pattern a bit more and work on making different tops and adding different accents. I've got plenty of time for that, and plenty of bridal showers to make them for!
