Here we are one full year later. Grandkids went back to school today. They are very excited to meet their teachers and hope to see friends from last year. Grandma Cat hopes to get back on track. Haven't 'blogged' for a full year because the connection from the Captive Illusions domain name wouldn't connect to the blog, which made the blog next to impossible to find. My daughter, De'Anna, visited from Colorado a couple of weeks ago and straightened everything out for me. Let's hear it for daughters...Hip Hip Hooray!
I've been helping said daughter, De'Anna, build inventory for a craft fair she will be doing in October in Colorado. I used Simplicity pattern 1957 (shown below) to make these sweet miniature aprons. I intended to make them for decorative purposes like it shows on the pattern below; however, the aprons fit Barbie dolls perfectly.
I've made 36 of the full aprons and intend to make a dozen or so out of Christmas fabric. If I do not run out of time, I'll make a couple dozen or so of the 1/2 aprons as well. These are fun and quick. The first apron took about 30 minutes, but after tweaking the pattern a bit, I can now make them in 10 minutes. They are fully lined and didn't cost a thing as I've got drawers of scrap fabric that I've saved for quilting.
Time to get this blog posted, get shipping done, finish the laundry, make some zucchini bread before the grandkids get home from school, get some accounting done, make a grocery list.....and so on and so forth!
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
