I’m in love…


…with Jaime’s Fat Quarter Apron Tutorial. I made one before the babies even woke up this morning. Don’t ask what I was doing up… it’s a long story about a marathon 5:30 AM potty trip that resulted in the girlie sleeping in and the mommy never falling back to sleep. Ok, that’s the whole story I guess.

So anyway, I had been having a minor panic attack about what crafty item to make for my SIL’s Relay For Life auction and then eureka!, I saw Jaime’s project the morning.

How sweet is this Alexander Henry Christmas fabric? It’s so Mad Men, right? The whole collection is adorable… and is selling out fast, so grab some! Oh! I want to make one with this pattern next! Really there are so many cute options! This project is addictive!

And remember, leave a comment on this or any post this week and your wit and charm could win you the purdy Sandi Henderson Fat Quarter. Perfect for this project!

Let's pretend that the decorative stitching was a creative decision and not because my stitching completely missed the back side the first time around. No, but really, I'm kindof addicted to decorative stitching.

Oh my gosh, that is So cute. Would be perfect for Xmas morning. I usually am so addicted to making things for my kids but since it is so easy I might have a go at making something for myself….

I just swooned for that fabric! I just upgraded from a 1938 Singer to a Singer Touch and Sew and everything I sew has decorative stiching these days. I am in awe of all of those fancy digital buttons and cannot help myself.

OMG! This is so cute! It reminds me of when my mom and dad use to take us downtown to see the Christmas tree and then we would cross State St. to see the Dcor on the windows at Marshall Field and drink hot chocolate. *with a smile*

This is officially the Christmas gift I will be giving this year–thanks! That is, if I can get myself to actually give them away and not hoard for myself.

I've marked this pattern on my list of to-do items. Oh, to be up and working early. Lately, I have trouble even getting up when the kids do! Maybe I need to go to bed earlier…

My husband has planned for me and four friends to take a cooking class with my favorite local chef for my 30th bday. Might have to whip myself up one of these babies! It looks so easy, I might just make some for my girlfriends, too. (Forget that I have half a dozen aprons already! A girl can never have too many, right?) Ooh, speaking of babies, I bet this could be scaled down for my little girl… the possibilities! You rock, Mamas!

I was shopping at Jo Ann's right before Christmas, and I found this fabric! I was so excited, because I had already seen this post. And…it was 50% off! Double score! I bought 2 yards even though I am not sure what I'll make yet!

AWESOME! I am always looking for something to do with my fat quarters. I sew on Thursdays with my mother in law and her quilting friends. It's been such a great way for us to connect and bond. She bought me a sewing machine last christmas after I had my daughter and taught me to sew bibs, then skirts and now we are going to attempt pants! An apron seems fitting since we both love to cook, and it would be another hobby to do together for us to bond even more 🙂 THanks!
