Tuesday

Saturday Sewing

Last Saturday was one of the few days that I didn't have to do anything at work. After mowing the really long grass (we had a lot of rain last week) I decided to do something fun. I really should have been cleaning, but decided to sew instead. I made myself an apron. The pattern and fabric are from Amy Butler. I have purchased some of my fabrics and patterns from The Fabric Shoppe, an etsy seller.

It even has a loop to hang your towel through. What a neat feature.

Now I just need to make something so I can wear my apron. I'm thinking of hanging some hooks on the wall in the kitchen to hang our aprons from. They are too pretty to hide in a drawer. I have also purchased some really cute aprons from Momo Made It. She does a beautiful job.

I also found this pattern on Posie Gets Cozie. It's a bag to take shopping instead of using the plastic shopping bags. I have plenty of fabric laying around here, so decided to make one. I used Amy Butler fabric.

I really like how it turned out. It folds flat when not in use.

I have it sitting by the back door on the shelf, so hopefully will remember to take it with me when I go shopping. I'm planning to make another one with the fabric left over from my apron.

That apron is really cute! Nice choices on the fabric for the apron and bag. Man, you were so productive on Saturday!

Wow. That is totally impressive that you can make an apron and bag just for fun on a Saturday! Those projects would have taken me forever. Can you have dad take a picture of your sporting this new apron?
