New Projects

Remember that cute skirt apron that I made for my sister-in-law’s bridal shower last year? Well, I’m back at it again! This time around I’m using Hoodie’s latest collection of fabrics, Morning Call (you can see the ones that I’ll be using on the left). According to Hoodie, Blank Quilting’s material runs a bit smaller than some other companies (I’ve found this to be true with other brands as well) so I’ll need to cut the main apron panel and waistband a bit differently. I’ll be posting some instructions on how to do this in my next entry on this apron. In the mean time, I’ll be posting a new sidebar for this pattern – look for it later in the day.
As for today, Bret and Taylor are playing in a ParentJunior golf tournament, so while Easton is napping I plan on multi-tasking…. working on the apron, brainstorming ideas (and if I have time start sewing) for a One Yard Wonders submission, start on a pair of baby booties from Amy’s Little Stitches Book (I’ll also be creating a sidebar for projects from this book as well), and work on my latest DIY Celebrity Fashion blog post for Threadbanger (in the mean time you can check out this week’s Threadhead’s tutorial for an adorable shirred summer dress). What’s on your agenda?

    Since it’s so hot outside, I decided to make bread! Yeah, that doesn’t make much sense. But I can let the bread rise out in the garage, on top of the car. And I can play with my new stand mixer some more….
    In sewing news, I made two new hooded towels for my boys – these are really long even on the 5-year-old – and I’m halfway through a new fleece blanket for my older son. I think it may be kept hidden until Christmas, but we’ll see….
