|Cherries and Polka Dots|
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...
