This is my latest apron creation...love it!!! It is a gardening apron. I don't know if you can see it or not, but it even has two loops, one on each side at the waist. I also purchased this nifty presser foot, a hemmer foot. This one is 2mm so it turns the fabric twice as you sew creating a super small little hem, perfect for the side ties. It does take some practice to use, but once you get the hang of it, it is wonderful! I plan to look for the 4mm one and get it as well, which will give me about a quarter hem without having to iron at all, saving a step. Who wouldn't love that?
I loved this fabric so much, I made one for my sister as well. As I was sewing, I kept thinking of people who I could make it for, but decided I can't sew for EVERYone! So, to all you sewing people out there, get busy! :)
Happy crafting!

Super cute! I love these bibs! Too bad I can't wear them...they are for my little niece Addie. These are from this pattern book Sweetly Stitched for Kids by Gooseberry Patch.
I altered the pattern a bit, making it a little simpler, but love them, simply for their fabric. This is a great way to use up fabric leftovers...hmm, why haven't I thought of that sooner? :) Happy crafting!
