Between fighting off a cold and having less access to the computer lately, I've been missing out on blogland and the days are adding up since I last posted. After getting some extra sleep and drowning the attacking cold bug with copious amounts of water, I'm happy to say I'm back!
Do you ever find yourself looking to make something for a bit of instant gratification? Well, I hit a roadblock with one of my works-in-progress and decided that I needed to make something simple and quick. I turned to Amy Butler's In Stitches apron pattern for the basics and then made some simple alterations in size and added touches.
I made a flower rather than the original rectangle shaped pocket for the front to go with the Mary Engelbreit fabric. Fun!
This is the reverse side of the apron. Solid colours and ric rac. There is even a tuck between the red and yellow fabric (which doesn't show up in this photo) for a bit more feminine flair.
I love the little sayings printed on the Mary Engelbreit fabric and chose this one for the pocket. I'm now thinking that this apron needs some matching kitchen accessories... but I probably should get back to the other projects already started. Kinda of scary when I look at how many works in progress that are needing attention around here.
What do you do when one project has you stumped? Do you dive into a different project for a change of pace? Do tell...
