DIY: Apron

apron_fabric_ps I had plenty of fabric left over from making the couch pillows a few weeks ago, so I decided to use the scraps to make an apron! The prints were already so pretty, and I’d been meaning to make one for a while. apron_square_ps
apron_pocket_ps
apron_sewing_ps Instead of following a pattern, I just sort of eye-balled the sizes. I started with a big square of the fabric that I wanted for the skirt. I used a different fabric for the tie and pockets, to give it some contrast. Hemming everything before going any further saved me some time later on. apron_sewing-2_ps I then base-stitched and gathered the top of the apron, and sewed the tie along the gathered side. It was a little tricky, but worked out great by the end. apron_done-floor_ps2 apron_mirror_ps All done! It turned out great, in fact, I’m planning to make another one for my mom for her birthday. Shhh, don’t tell her.

Summer wish list

wish list
I love Pinterest, it’s a bit of a problem. The DIY and Food catagories I will literally wear. out. To the point where the gray wheel spinns and spins and seems to be silently hating me for making it work so hard.

Oh, you can relate? I thought so.

Anyway, occasionally I visit the fashion pages and I came across this ensemble. So cute right? I know. These pieces will be finding their way into my summer wardrobe before too long…
