Cherries and Polka Dots
Well, well, well...look who's back into the sewing world! Yes, I have been long gone for quite a while but slowly emerging back into my old roots! A quick recap on what and where I have been goes something like this: going on my third year in college, I officially have a teenager (my daughter), critiquing clay sculptures (my sons newest hobby), moved to a nice apartment with my kiddos, and now trying to get back into what once kept my sanity in place! Sewing and crafting!

A good friend of mine asked me if I could sew a 50's Pin-Up style apron for a friend of hers that was soon to be married. This of course was a bridal shower gift. I was excited and nervous at the same time because I hadn't sewn in approximately over a year. With the move, I had to search for the fabric and sewing material boxes, which of course I had not unpacked yet (been at the new place for 5 months and still unpacking).

I went in search of a pin-up print fabric and was unsuccessful. There was a few pin-up style fabrics but they were lingerie and bathing suit prints. Definitely not what was asked for. So I went with the next big thing since I was running short on time. Cherries and polka dots was the runner up on a 50's style apron.

Once I found the patterns and sewing materials, I got to work! Oh how I missed cutting, pressing, pinning, threading the sewing machine and pressing on the pedal. The creation was outstanding! Well, at least I would like to think so...

Needless to say, my friend liked the apron and her friend loved her gift! Yay! Sigh...I am glad my sewing machine and I have been reunited!
