Sadly, this blog is a bit sleepier than I'd like these days. Pop over here if you'd like to know why.

Polka Dot Apron

Polka Dot Apron

Another weekend spent with the sewing machine out. Nothing entirely new... another apron! This one for a different co-worker. She asked for brown, turquoise, and brick red... and let me come up with the rest. I got as close to her color request as possible. I was super tempted to Rit dye white ric rac to get it more "turquoisey" but reason interferred, thank goodness.

This apron was spread out over 3 days, although the actual construction was pretty quick. I just kept hitting road blocks... like realizing at 10pm that I didn't have brown thread, or running out to plant carrots at 8am. I did somehow manage to detail the leaves while simultaneously carrying a conversation with Scott.

I like the polka dots because they are very happy... and the apron was for quite possibly one of the most cheerful ladies I know.
