Sewing Projects

I just finished this apron and before I post it in my shop (HERE)

I thought I would give you a sneak peak.


I just love this fabric. 
 It is a premium cotton that is so cheerful and drapes nicely.

If I were going to keep this apron, 
I would surely wear it to collect eggs in the summer.
I'm sure that my hens would approve!
(But, I am not going to keep it... it is for sale.)

I also wanted to share another project with you...
one I think you'll want to try.
I made these four as practice.
You can tell the size of them by the mat beneath...
each square is one inch.

I saw this idea posted by my friend Steph, The Queen of Dreams.
Her post directed the reader to this website for a tutorial.
Check it out  HERE.

These would make great embellishments for a hat, a coat,
a purse, a sweater, a pillow....just about anything.
My advice is to watch the tutorial video a few times and then
again while you try your first rosette.  It took me a few tries
until I got the knack.

Have fun!!

Bev, what a cute apron. I looked at you selling site and you have made so many wonderful ones. I don't wear aprons..but the sight of the hydrangea one was enough to change that fact. It was incredible. I think I would want to wear it as a dress up outfit though. I wouldn't want to get it dirty. hehe. Beautiful work. Lisa
