Zzzzzzzz

I can really tell that spring is here, because I have had a splitting sinus headache for days. It finally let up a little around 1 30 this morning, but man was it a long night! Good thing I finished the new napping pillow yesterday, I am going to need it today. (And sadly, no playing outside for us today until this pollen/mold/whatever settles down a little.)

You can see what I meant about the dotty fabric from the last post here. This is that Ebay fabric, and the dots are just TOO big. They really overshadow my flowers. The hunt for tiny red dotted fabric still continues....
I also found this apron in my stash drawer while rummaging for a different fabric, and whipped up an apron tote in about 10 minutes. It wasn't the prettiest apron (a bit too mauve for me), but it does make a cute tote. The floral fabric has the cutest cherries on it. A VERY, VERY easy and satisfying project! (Even a totally novice sewer can do this.)

This idea came from The Vintage Chica. You can see hers here .
It occurred to me while piecing it together that this would also be an easy way to make smocks for kids. If I can find another apron to cut I will show you how to do it.
