At last, here is a look at what we have been doing lately! This one of the reasons why I have not been post recently. =) Hopefully, I will be able to remedy that soon.
Both of the aprons below are size small
This is an extra large
The one and only half apron. =)

This is just some of the bolts that we got at a quilting material sale! Pictures coming soon of what we are doing with it all!!
First, I cut two pieces of material a little bit wider and taller than I wanted it to make room for seam allowance. I sewed a 1/4 inch seam on three of the sides.
Next, I cut a piece for a pocket. I cut mine 14 inches wide and six inches long. I sewed a rolled hem along the top.
After that, I sewed three sides to form a little bag. I sniped the corners to make it lay better.
Then I attached it to the bag. I unintentionally made a double pocket because I sewed it on by only attaching three of the sides.
Then came the straps. I cut them twice as wide as I wanted them and folded a 1/4 inch amount all the way down them and folded them in half.
I sewed a small seam down the open side. This method is easier than turning the straps right side out but that method would work just as well.
The lining came next. I sewed three of the sides together leaving a three inch gap along the bottom.
I then attached the lining straps and the outer part of the bag together.
After that, turn it right side out through the slit left in the lining.
I then stitched up the slit in the bottom of the lining.
Iron it so it lays right. the sew a top stitch along the top to keep the lining from coming out.
The finished product!
A couple months ago, we got a whole bolt of pink gingham for curtains in the girls room.
First, I took the existing curtains and measured the gingham to them cutting a little more to make them longer.
I also cut off the finished edges.
Then I did a rolled hem on both sides and the bottom.
Then I did a pocket on the top and sewed a seam to make the double pocket.
The first one took me 2 hours but the time got shorter every curtain. 😉
On December 27th 2013, David turned 5 years old. He wanted a variety of things on his cake, but finally we settled on one.
I don’t know if you can see it but the car says 4 sale. =)
Hope you enjoy!
MERRY LATE CHRISTMAS!

She wanted an ice cream shop on the top so I used little people we had for it.
