Sew Much Fun!l

Yay, it's done!!  I finished my very first on-my-own-at-my-own-house sewing project!  I made a super cute (if I do say so myself) apron for Evan.  It's hard to tell from the pics and the busy pattern, but it has quite a few pockets on the front, just right for crayons, mixing spoons, and paint brushes.  The pattern was a very inexpensive one from Simplicity, and though it took me about 4 hours (literally) to figure out what on earth all the words, symbols, pictures and directions meant, once I figured it out I discovered that it was really not as hard as I'd always thought it would be.  I rather enjoyed it actually.  I was even able to figure out on my own (thanks to a suggestion from Mom) how to line the top half of it so that it would be a little more durable.  As Evan loves to help me with cooking and baking, I'm sure we'll be getting lots of use out of it.  :)


  1. It turned out great!! Evan's happy smile is the best!

  2. I LOVE this apron! What a cutie patootie you have there!
