I want to make this one quick. On my way back home from visiting the family, I stopped at two HUGE antique malls. It was the adventure of Spring Break 2010!
I came across exactly what I wanted, including a bag of old, vintage binding and buttons and a top quilt.
Then I got to work with my sewing machine. My lovely mother surprised me with it three years ago for my birthday, but I never really challenged myself with it. This week, I've been sewing up loads of Christmas gifts and possible merchandise for a summer/spring craft show or flea market (if I can find one).
Look what I made: Charming Aprons
Nothing new. No pattern required.
And in case you're wondering: I still haven't bought anything new for myself. Nothing. I did buy some gifts and fabric to make gifts (I didn't take a photo, but I made my friend Emily the cutest Peter Rabbit baby blanket to match the nursery theme she picked for her expected baby). And a fabric store in the neighborhood is having a going out of business sale. So I stocked up on a few yards for Christmas gifts.
