To Paris and Back

This past weekend was extremely busy with working 20 hours (10 Saturday and 10 on Sunday) and when you get up at 2:30 in the morning to go to said job, you are very tired when you get home.   BUT…my new fabric had arrived from and I really wanted to make new curtains for my bathroom.  I just couldn’t stand the ugly plain red that I had quickly purchased at Wal-Mart, but it lasted for the time being until I had found something I absolutely loved.




After about a month on hiatus from my sewing machine, I was getting the itch to create something.  Since my mom and sister’s birthday are coming up and just so happen to land on the same day of each other, I found for my mom a super cool Marine pattern, sparkley star and sandstone patterns to create the most adorable apron, ever!  My little brother is a Marine so I felt that this pattern would be fitting for my mom!


Fun, Vintage Apron

I have at this point of my projects, mastered straight stitching and wanted to attempt something that was most likely out of my league at the moment, but wanted to give it a whirl.  I am an early Christmas shopper.  I am the one that starts finding Christmas gifts during the day after Christmas day sales!  I had 3/4 of my shopping completed back March of this year!  I wanted to try a more difficult pattern so I used the Vintage Apron pattern created by Sew4Home.  After 1 hour at JoAnn fabrics picking the perfect fabric that I would be using to create this Christmas gift for my soon to be sister-in-law, and 6 hours of reading and actually doing the project, it was a success!
