This time I made something for ME!!

When I did my craft show I saw a vendor with the cutest apron on. I asked her where she got it from and she said her friend made it for her years ago. Well I just had to have an apron like hers,since I tend to be very very...messy in the kitchen!!! Not to mention I figured my grand babies would get a kick out of it, and I am a big kid at heart! So I pulled out one of my old aprons and made a basic pattern to get started with, and then headed for the sewing machine. I do have to mention that I never tend to make anything for myself, everything ends up being given as gifts or sold so I was super duper excited that I was finally making something just for me! My daughter in law came into my craft room while I was trying to decide on the pocket, I was leaning towards a solid color but she insisted that I used the candy cane material so I went with what she chose.  OK now I have it all sewed up and drag my daughter away from the computer so she can be my model, she was all to happy to get in the spirit of the moment and put on her Santa hat too.  I think I am going to make these for next years craft shows, and to put on esty. Then while I was thinking about that I was thinking of variations to do, like reindeer, Santa, Christmas trees, packages and on and on... I can't wait to hit the store for more fabric!  Wishing you all a very BLESSED CHRISTMAS!!

  1. Good for you making something for yourself! I tend to have the same problem - it's something for someone else or an item to sell. I've really tried hard this past year to make more for me! The apron is very cute - I love snowmen! ~Ann

  3. Aw, how very cute! I think these would be great sellers for you!

    I know what you mean, I never make anything for myself. Yet, I'm always making things I totally love but sell them or give them away and never keep any for myself. That is gonna be my new year's resolution-- to keep one of everything I make, haha!
