Sewing on Friday

Two days of working on sewing machines was enough for me this week.  Come to think of it, I had spent two days working on machines with Andrea this week as well.  No wonder I had had it.

I had to sew today.  Check out what I made at http://sewingmachinemagic.blogspot.com/2012/10/cute-little-burlap-bag.html

Before I did that, though, I finished this sewing apron

I found the jumper at a thrift store and thought it would make a cute sewing apron.  The fabric is cotton duck but it stretches and was a bit of a pain to work with.  I originally cut it too short so I had to add some fabric back on.  Then I made the pockets.  It was not all that much fun.  I don't really plan ahead all that well.  I have several jumpers waiting for their transformation to aprons.  There is a good idea for holiday presents.  Bags and aprons.

Tomorrow Betsy and I get to work on a Singer 222.  Really.  How lucky are we?

  1. I have in mind a sewing apron, too. To keep the threads off my clothes, and the grease!

    1. I have a long apron for working on machines. I made pockets for it and when I drop screws they land in the pockets!
