Look what I’m making…

I found this cute apron pattern surfing blogs the other night. So, I decided to try to make one for myself. Now, my sewing machine that I got at a garage sale for 15.00 is a 1954 Montgomery Ward model. I do believe that is the year it was born. Still works like a charm. I made several mistakes, but that would be operator error plus I am a rookie ~ to say the least. I bought cheap thread and it kept breaking….UGH….. So Jill’s sewing rule #1 is ~ DO NOT buy thread on the dollar rack unless you want a headache. So, in order for me to finish this cute reversible apron, I must buy some more black thread tomorrow.

Here is a better picture of the Mary Engelbreit fabric that I chose. I wanted it to be cutsie and girlie, well since, I am a girl and all.

I love the style of this apron, but I really can’t comprehend to this day the real purpose behind them??? Do you? I always splatter grease or whatever on my shirt. So, how is this cute apron really going to prevent me from grease stains???

    Just an FYI, Joann’s and Hancock Fabrics put their thread on sale half price every couple of months. I do a lot of sewing, so I try to stock up once or twice a year. Cute apron by the way!

  2. When I’ve worn the 1/2 type apron & I’m afraid I’ll splash my top, I tie it above my chest/boobs. Dumb, but does the trick.
