normally I feel like it's my responsibility as a mother to embarrass my children at regular intervals.....luckily for me, I don't usually have to work very hard at it. But the other day one of them asked me in his kind, compassionate, "practicing to be a teenager" tone if I could please "maybe clean some of the threads off my clothes before coming to pick them up from the bus". Well, I guess it's not too much to ask, and it's certainly not the first time this request has come from a member of the household.
So, two 1/2 yards of fabric and little bit of ric-rac later I had myself a little studio apron----a project long overdue.
the little rounded pocket came from the cut-away for the bib section and reminds me of my grandmothers aprons for some reason----she always had a tissue, now I have a place for my tissue. And look, little Miss Sparkles makes an appearance too!
this will definitely not be the last apron, but a quick and easy and hopefully I'll get in the habit of wearing it. Then I can find new ways to embarrass the kids!
Hugs and Stitches!
