I wanted to make an apron. It all started with an owl dishtowel from target. I am sure you have all seen it if you shop there. It is SO cute and I ended up with 6 of them. I bought four and my lovely niece Madison picked out the other two for me. I decided I REALLY did need to make something with at least one of them. That sent me on a search for a cute apron. I am not a girly girl but I saw the old fashioned ones that are a heart on the top and I HAD to make one. Weird right? Any ways. I freaking love how it turned out. If I ever make one again I will make the top a lot smaller because it makes my boobs look even bigger then they already are and really, I don't need that. Maybe 8 years ago but now after the kids, I'm good. haha
I have had the owl fabric for like 3 months now dying to use it. Everything I kept thinking of to use it for was summer stuff and it's got WINTER owls on it for goodness sakes so I just hadn't used it yet. I love it paired with the owl dishtowel I used as the heart and the pocket. Isn't it cute? I have an oven mitt and a pot holder to match, not that anyone will ever see that. The funny thing is now I am on am apron kick. I already have another one in the works that I can't WAIT to make. Maybe one of these days I will actually get around to it. I have too many projects going on right now. I need to focus. One is something for my husband for Valentine's day. I can't wait to get it done so I can post it in case any one wants to copy it because I think it is going to be hysterical. Hopefully it turns out that way and doesn't come out lame. I needed embroidery floss though and I don't have any and haven't gone any where the last two weeks that carry it. Tomorrow I am taking the kids shopping and we are going to get some. WOO HOO
Aside from that I have also done some hair clips recently.
I absolutely LOVE the way the zebra one with the red flower came out! LOVE IT! Hopefully my friend likes them too.
I also did this owl dress for Kayla. I got this owl onesie at a Kid to Kid place in Waco for 50 cents. It still fits Kayla width wise but is too short for her. So I took some more of that lovely pink material I have been using a lot lately ( for any one who is wondering just how much of that pink crap I bought, it was a sheet set so I have A LOT of it ) and made a skirt, gathered it and then sewed it on. I think it came out adorable and can't wait to see it on her. Her birthday is in two more days and I could just cry. That first year just went by WAY too fast!!!
