A is for Apron...

A is usually for apron... but today A is for Addiction! It has been an apron making day and a half! I had a birthday luncheon for a friend so I made her a Halloween apron and I had such a fun time doing it ,I made another. Below is the photo of the one I kept... sorry I forgot to take a photo of the one I gave away.
I love skulls so... what makes more sense than bedazzling me some for Halloween... well ironing on a rhinestone patch.
( If only glitter stuck well to fabric... notice I said well- I have tried it)
Have no fear... the fabric has a glitter sheen to it so I am going to be OKAY!

This is the little poem that I put on a card with the Halloween apron:


Here’s a little Halloween gift
To help with trick or treat!
You’ll go to the door
And look so spooky sweet!

It will make you look so festive-
In this time of scary things!
A little black, orange & purple-
Don’t forget about the bling!

Nothing’s better than a sassy witch
Who serves up eye of newt!
This will make cooking easy-
And you will look so very cute!

The fun didn't stop there... I went to a fabulous fabric store with my darling neighbor and saw this fabric and a new pattern. LOVED it. We both did- so we both bought it and made it yesterday. We have a church pie-making activity... so we are going to wear them and be TWINS! ( This is the stuff that is making "Seriously So Blessed" a fortune) I even bought a bedazzler ( for real) and I am going to add little rhinestones all over the flowers. Here is the finished project MINUS the bedazzling! It has been a fun few days- I am planning on making a few more, but I first need my man to go out of town so I don't have to worry about the backpedaling.



Sorry about the scary photos... I am photographically challenged! I am going to get it together someday... (promises...promises!)

Love them both! Now stop it because you're making me want to drop everything and sew, and I am so far behind lately on my to-do list. I wore the apron you made me to school yesterday to help with applesauce making, and everyone died because of it's cuteness.
