I've always loved sewing and crafting. It wasn't until after I was married and got close to my sister-in-law Teresa, that I really took off! She taught me the basics of quilting and I've been sewing ever since. Scrapbooking has always interested me, and I love it! And I'm not afraid to try my hand at other crafty projects here and there. I consider it a great outlet and stress reliever!
I thought I'd share a few pictures of a recent quick project.I love turning something ordinary into something extraordinary! What started as a dish towel and a 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric turned into this cute and simple apron.I basically cut a triangle out of each side of the top (measuring in 4" and down 10"), then made my own double-fold binding. Honestly, you could make it even quicker and easier if you only 'bound' the arm cut-outs (since they are the only raw edges), but I liked the look of sewing the coordinating fabric around the whole perimeter. I added a quick applique with her initial, and voila!A friend of mine recently moved into a new home (new to her!) and did a full kitchen make-over. This was her little 'kitchen-warming' gift!
