Amber's Apron

Engineer daughter wanted an apron! yeah!, maybe that means she'll be engineering in the kitchen soon! We found the perfect apron in Simple Sewing by Lotta Jansdotter. (We were able to get the book through the library system.) Amber picked the fabrics, designed and hand stitched the embroidery motif, and cut out the apron pieces. I sewed it up. It's reversible. (It appears gray, BUT really it is a very pretty Amy Butler green solid.) This apron has a bit of a mod look to it and a very pleasing fit. Hooray, it's done!

I Made A Little Pouch

Here's the front view (had to pull out my trusty little snap fastening tool).

This is a 'kindle case', at least that's what "The Sometimes Crafter" calls hers. She was kind enough to do an easy to follow tutorial. I don't have a kindle, but I have some other uses for this little pouch. Let's see now, where is that 50 thousand in cash?...I just had it...hmmm, when I find it, this pouch will be bulging with green stuff.

Here's the inside view (lots of Denyse Schmidt goodness).

Here is the back view, can you see, it is already full... ?

OK here they are. I won't lie, I really don't care for the big gerber daisy sitting on the cute baby's forehead, with that tight band going around the wee little head. But these little ditty's are smaller and daintier, for your sweet little baby girl. I've heard they are simple to make. Trim off the band and toe of the sock, crochet up some cute little flowers, add beads if you'd like, stitch it all together and you have a great little baby accessory. Have fun! (see previous post...)

Have You Seen These?

Oh wait, I guess I don't have anything here for you to see! Why can't I upload pictures on my blog anymore??? I wanted to show a new and cute little item that my blonde friend made. I won't tell, but it involves a little crocheting, a little stitchin' and a knee hi nylon! I'll try another day to upload pictures. In the mean time, I'm getting ready to leave town...again...we've done some traveling of late. One great spot we experienced in our travels was Flathead Lake. Have you been to that area of Montana? Absolutely gorgeous.
