My mom is known as the apron lady.
Ok. That's not true.
But anyone who knows her, knows that among her many MANY talents, she can make a KILLER apron. It's kind of one of her things (but she has way better nicknames than the "apron lady," most of them I'm realizing I can't really share on the blog because my family's sense of humor is inappropriate). You can call her Mum.
But moving on.
The other day I was chillin out, maxin, relaxin' with my friend Kris who informed me she didn't own an apron, and she rarely had the urge to cook. She also thinks it's really funny that I wear an apron when I cook for people. But hello! It's an apron. Number 1, they are super cute. Number 2, they make me feel like such a homemaker I don't know what to DO with myself but cook a good meal. There is something about a woman and her apron. So naturally, I told Kris I would make one for her.
And yes. The apron that Kris was talking about is one that my Mum made. God love 'er.
So here is the journey of Kris's womanhood. What? Seriously. Watch.
I used the Kwik Sew pattern (33772), and followed apron view A. If you are not SUPER comfortable with using your sewing machine, this is a great project to learn with. It will feel a little out of your league as you start to put the pieces together, but a great way to teach yourself!
Do you recognize the fabric below? Yes. These are the old curtains I made for the loft. Hahaha. Reduce, Re-use, Recycle, right? You can just call me Julie Andrews if you want.
No don't. I think that could be sacrilegious.
Then it was off to the races...
Seriously. I started making this at 3:30pm and Burley and I had dinner with Kris and her hubby at 7:00pm. So it was a freakin' race. And you now know my tendency to do a crappy job when I have a project I can't wait to finish, so I had to FIGHT that FIGHT that FIGHT that and do a GOOD job.
... in 3.5 hours.
But the hard work payed off. I was so excited with the final product. I felt like my Mum would be proud.
And I couldn't wait to hand it off to this girl, and contribute to her journey to womanhood.
Haha. I'll probably get in trouble for that one.
Anyways. I hope you are inspired to A) Cook B) Wear an apron C) Go out on a limb and sew an apron D) Eat food, if all else fails.
Today, I think I choose D.
Oh yea, and if you're wondering.... I am the apple. My
Nipple Cape Mum's the tree.
