I also needed to make an apron for myself (other than the one I cook in) to hold money and stuff. Check it out:
I used Patty Young's Mezzanine collection by Michael Miller Fabrics. I love this collection and knew I HAD to use it for MY apron.
Patty Young is a wonderful designer and has a new line coming out in December called Flora and Fauna. I wish it were out now so I could make some folks some stuff for Christmas presents with it! She has several different color palettes with this collection, which is a wonderful option to have. Which one do you like best? Leave me a comment and I will enter your name into my "fishbowl" at the craft fair this weekend. I'll be giving away an apron and a Buttercup Bag!!!

First I have to tell the story of how all this began. Back in April, I was planning on participating in my parents’ neighborhood yard sale. I had just started sewing again and had a permanent place to keep both machines out on a table. No more putting them away after completing a project. My mom suggested that, for the yard sale, I make some cute aprons. We thought that folks would snatch them up!
NOW LET ME TELL YOU HOW THAT WENT.
No one even looked at my aprons. Sigh. Oh well. Now at least I have a good story to tell!
So I told this story to a lot of people. The reaction was always, “Oh I didn’t know you could sew.” or “I want to see the aprons, I’ve been looking for a cute one.” or “Can you make me _________?” Ever since then I have had projects to do for people.
So far I’ve done aprons, curtains, tote bags, purses, and some alterations.
I’ve also opened an Etsy shop. You can see it here. I also accept custom orders.
In the next couple of weeks, I am going to be having a giveaway!!! Stay tuned!!!
By the way, the 2-day yard sale got me $100 and a F-150 full of stuff to take to Goodwill. What a wash.
