oh my gosh i have been waiting for you to get here!
LOOK AT WHAT I MADE!!!!!! I MADE THIS APRON!!!!! ARE YOU EXCITED????
whew. i feel better. i've been holding that in for two days.
my friend, stormy, had a book of crafts you could do with 1 yard of fabric (i'm sorry i don't have the title) and we picked this cottage apron to make in 1 day. it would have worked, except in all sewing endeavors i end up pricking myself, cursing like a sailor, and crying because the machine won't work or because i have to pull out a seam and i hate that so very, very much. sounds like a good 'ol time, right?
so now you know what you're in for if i ever invite you over for a sewing party.
i started this apron back when we had our girls' weekend and all i had left to do was shorten the neck strap and sew on the waist straps. and it took me a month and a half to get around to it.
so i finished it two nights ago after reading a blog that had 191 free apron patterns and i nearly wet myself. then thought, "i can't do another apron until i finish the last one."
--now let's clarify here. by "i can't do another apron," i actually mean, "i can't sew a straight line without stormy there telling me how to do it." so don't be jealous of my mad sewing skills because...in actuality...i stink at it.
but you wouldn't know it from this handy-dandy awesome apron, wouldya?
rock-on, faux seamstresses, rock on.
