Tackling Some Sewing

Today I went over to my MIL’s house and finished an apron for Drama Queen. She helped me pick out the fabrics and colors. She really likes it and its really cute on her.

However, on the way home one of the ties got stuck under the booster seat and broke!!! Here’s a picture of the front (these images can be enlarged by clicking):

I’m still a fairly novice seamstress, and this is the first time I’ve messed with rick-rack, so it’s not that great but overall I’m happy. It’s also reversible:

The back side is pretty plain though, so I’m thinking that maybe it needs some sort of appliqué heart or something. Since I now have to replace the waist ties, might as well take care of that, too, while I’m at it. Don’t you think? 🙂

So I guess I’m not really finished yet, huh?

I think it’s really cute 🙂 One of these days I’ll get back to my sewing projects (at this point, it’s almost a full laundry basket!). I’m not so great at sewing but I do enjoy it. The patchwork is so pretty!

Thank you. It’s a lot PINKer in real life.. I know people say this a lot, but “the picture doesn’t do it justice, it’s a lot prettier in person.” 😛

Rick rack…you’re brave! It’s just too intimidating for me.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
