I needed to own an apron. All the cool people have them. They are uber stylish and can make you look super thin. That's the point of an apron, right?
Well I did it. I sewed my very first apron. I got the instructions off of the craft gossip site but I am weary in directing you to the exact instructions because there were errors in them and quite simply horrid and impossible to follow. Really I kind of made it up as I went along. And I KNOW....I went a little ruffle crazy.
Now, more than likely, I will never have this super cool, stylish and slimming apron on my body again. I don't cook.....ever. Spencer, on the other hand, is a Chef at a fancy restaurant (you know, the kind of place where you have no idea what the things are on the menu...the kind of place where I don't eat anything except bread because I prefer my food fried and served in a basket). But still, something tells me it's just going to end up in the closet. Ooooh...I could hang it in the kitchen and pretend like I am a cool kid that wears an apron...then it would become an interior design AND fashion statement. Good idea. I am going with that.
During the apron photoshoot the camera somehow got turned on Spencer as he performed his Tong Tricks. His tongs hold a very special place in his heart. I am so proud.
So my next sewing ambition.....a skirt! No ruffles involved.
Anyone know of a good skirt tutorial?? Preferably one where I don't have to make up my own instructions.
p.s. I don't really prefer my food fried and served in a basket but I do live at the beach in Alabama....it's nearly impossible to find anything that is not fried and served in a basket.
Obsessing over...a lamp.
