A finish

I have another project finished. My daughter has been wanting me to make her an apron. I pinned a pattern on Pinterest a while back and sort of procrastinated about doing it. She wanted a certain fabric and I was supposed to buy it. Honestly I couldn't even remember what the fabric was. Finally I bought some Thanksgiving themed fabric and got started. It took me another week or so before I actually finished it.

These are not great pictures but this first one has a bonus in it with Gibbs in the background. Please just look at the apron and Gibbs and ignore the fact that I'm having a bad hair day and it's pulled back in a pony tail.



I told her that her apron was done and it was full of imperfections and that if she wanted another one she could make it herself. It wasn't that difficult but I wasn't quite satisfied with how it turned out.

So if she wanted a certain fabric, why didn't she buy it herself? I like the apron, and things and people don't have to be perfect to be lovable.

I would rather you be making things because it's fun, not because you're expected to. You work hard enough at your job without that.

I made and apron in 1959 in 9th grade home economics class, and it did not look as good as yours... crooked seams, cut out was not straight. I think it had two pockets. Mother wore it for years. she and my aunts always wore aprons. I have never worn one. tell your daughter she can wear it while she cooks your TG dinner...😉

forgot to say congrats on another project finished. what will you do today?

I think you did a great job on the apron. I've been wanting an apron or two or three for a few years now. I think I'll cheat and take skirts I no longer wear. Most are gathered, cut them in half, sew up the sides and add ties. Sounds easy, but I am a procrastinator.

It is a treat to see your lovely, smiling self, and of course, Gibbs photo bombing in the background. ;-)

Happy holiday season ~ FlowerLady

It looks fine to me! That was nice of you to make that for your daughter! My mom always wore aprons. I have a couple I should dig out of the cedar chest and wear for the holidays.

It's a lovely apron. I hate making aprons - made my first one in 4H - didn't enjoy making it then - still don't enjoy making them. Lovely photo of you, Gibbs and the apron. :) Have a good one.

I think it is cute and you did a fine job....I know we are always find stuff wrong with what we make. But honestly, no one is going to see. And if they do so what...

Gibbs is so cute!

Aprons are almost a thing of the past for me. I remember that my Mum always wore one and when we first got married I did but I haven't worn one for ages now, silly because they are so practical.

My favorite thing here is getting to see YOU! With your beautiful smile and ponytail. The apron is so cute, with the little turkeys! And I love that it has a big pocket, big enough for even pot holders. Waistbands are hard, and yours is perfect. Gibbs is looking very interested in the whole thing. Love your sunflowers in the cute sunflower pail.

Lin said...

I LOVE it! It is so cute!

Don't put down your work...ever! We all do that and it is a bad habit. Make it, show it off and be proud of what you did. Nobody is looking for the mistakes and if you point them out, you are only doing yourself a disservice.

Can you wear an apron like this at work? I think it would be cute to have seasonal aprons like that.

Well I think it is perfect. What a great job you did. It's adorable and I love seeing Gibbs in the photo.

Ann said...

Cheerfulmonk, I said the same thing. Not only did she want me to make it but she wanted me to buy the fabric. I think something is wrong with that plan...lol

Sheryl, She said she liked it so that's all that matters :)

Anni, thanks. I do have fabric to make her a Christmas one as well but I'm not so sure I want to

Briony, I wear an apron at work but I have never worn one at home. I remember growing up my mom always wore one though

Ginny, aww, thanks.

Lin, Yes maam, I will never put down my work again and you are right.
We have aprons that we are supposed to wear but I doubt anyone would ever say anything if I wore something different for the holidays.

CrystalChick said...

You and your apron are lovely!! I'm sure your daughter will love it.
Gibbs! Adorable!

wonderful photo of you both, and of course the magic apron...and yep, if she doesn't like it your words are just right "make it yourself"...

having just made one of the "rollup journals" and realising that up close there is a problem where something was supposed to be - but then looking at it from my bed to wall, approx 3 metres away - it looks like it's supposed to look like that. And it wasn't the original plan...

I love the fabric - the turkeys are so cute! I don't see anything wrong with it!!
