Its been a great summer so far. Last week we did the first round of strawberry jam and hope to do more this week. There was also a visit to my parents which included time with aunts, uncles and cousins. There's nothing like sitting outside on a warm summer night with extended family...such good memories!
While in Ohio my mom and I made an apron for me. I always have grubby hands grabbing me and am also good at making big messes on my own. It doesn't take long for my shirts to get dirty so a full size apron is a necessity.
I found the perfect fabric at my Joanne's, but didn't buy it figuring I could get it in Ohio...Wrong!! I had my tub of scraps though and found a great combination with plenty to spare. I bought the main fabric last year just because I liked it...I haven't found it since then so it was a good impulse buy. The green gingham was from pieces of a skirt I almost made in high school.
I was desperate for a clothes pin bag and went on the hunt for an easy tutorial. This is what I found. I was able to whip up this bag with leftover fabric, lining and bias tape during nap time. Not too shabby for a novice like myself :D
