because i like them.

Here’s what I’m doing {besides trying to get over the fact that I committed to blog every day. That’s the last time I’m doing that. It’s not that I don’t love blogging, it’s that now I’m supposed to blog.} lately, in-between the bathing and feeding and cleaning up after three small children and festivities and days off school, etc, etc, etc…

I am not, {I repeat} NOT a seamstress, but I can pretend, right? Since Kim over at OJ &Co. keeps selling out of her killer aprons, I decided to just make one for myself. Well, of course, I have to go nuts deciding which fabrics I love, and maybe I can use some of my collection of vintage hankies, add some lace and whatever and stuff and you have…some attempts. I’m getting a little better, but I will make them much better. (It would have been cheaper just to spend the $40.) I have googled fabric flower tutorials (there are a lot!) and have started fooling around to see what I like, so most likely I’ll have a mish-mosh of random fabric flowers, but how can that be bad? Maybe I’ll have an apron give-away one of these days.

So cute! Yes, please have an apron give-away and let me win. I love your fabrics.

Those fabrics are GREAT! I love cute aprons. I think they should just be worn over pants and skirts on an everyday basis. I look forward to dinner parties just so I can wear a cute apron! If I ever learn to sew, maybe I'll make some!

I get what you mean about blogging everyday. When it starts to be a chore, it isn't as fun.

Your work is incredible. It is a good thing there are people around like you.

Screw the give a way. Make people buy them, they are so cute you deserve it. Do I have to cook to need an apron? Can I wear it to kindergarten pick-up?

Georgia said...

I love love love your apron! PLEASE sell them! I have been needing an apron.

It's so funny because I was soooo excited to buy my cutesy indie apron and do I wear it? Not so much. It's more just to look at. Maybe this will inspire me to actually wear it today (what if it gets a stain - heaven forbid????)

P.S. I love your blogging everyday. I love knowing I can log onto your blog every single day and there will be something new. Love love love.

I'd buy your aprons! I really need one-every day when I take off my pants I notice I have stains on my tush. When I'm cooking I forget to use a towel and the next closest thing is my denim. I would need an apron that covered the back as well as the front.

Yes, sell your aprons, they are very popular right now! Love the fabrics.

Hello, thanks for "there" to my blog!
Yeah, I have 2 kids (3 and 5 years old) and when both at home I can't do much. Blogging everyday...well, I don't have many things to tell people, since I cut all personal stuff...this blogland can be strange sometimes so, I got shy.
I like your apron too, I started making bags and after selling the first one, I got motivated. Keep moving on. Get your space out there!
