Bring on the holidays! No, not yet? What--you're not ready? DH and I went Christmas shopping and we are D.O.N.E. !! I try to have the shopping done by Thanksgiving.
I don't do a lot of holiday type sewing, but I like to have a "little something" for a couple of ladies. This year it's aprons. I made the 4-Corners Apron from Vanilla House Designs.
This is Sewing 101. The apron is lined with the co-ordinating fabric. The public side has trim around two edges. Two large squares sewn together. Add straps at the neckline and waist. I used a religious-themed cotton fabric for the right side, and found a dotted print for the reverse side and trim. I think the recipients will appreciate the fabric choice. Ease-peasy. I will make another, probably tomorrow.
And then, I am finished with holiday gifts. The day after Thanksgiving, while people are out shopping in droves, I will be at home, hopefully in my sewing room, enjoying the day. Or-perhaps wrapping gifts!
Tomorrow I will pack my gear for the Felted Wool Jacket class on Tuesday and Wednesday. I'm looking forward to two days of fun!
