I have a new obsession. It’s a little one, but I could see the potential for it to grow bigger.
I want an apron.
Now before you get all “hey hey, hey, hot stuff” on me, I’m not talking about THAT kind of French Maid-ish apron (although I’m sure Trey would approve).
Nor am I talking about the June Cleaver kind of apron.
I want something fun and cute and easy to clean. I have my old denim Pampered Chef apron, but that’s kinda blah, you know? Blue denim. Whoopee.
Not too long ago, I found through The Secret is in the Sauce a blog called Apron Goddesses. Ah HAH! I’m not the only one wanting an apron! There are many different buttons on her blog that lead to others who make aprons, dresses, skinny scarves, whatever. Oh, and these really awesome jeans! She even has apron giveaways on her blog.
Now here’s the thing. I’m cheap frugal with my money and I can’t really afford some of these cute little aprons (or those really awesome jeans) and I never win online contests, so now it has me thinking: could I make these on my own? I could, but it would have to be the old fashioned way – as in, no sewing machine. I can sew with needle and thread but I haven’t the first clue how to use a machine.
Oh, but if I could… the things I would make… aprons, scarves, patchwork jeans, and finally, the coups de grace, the t-shirt quilt.
See that? That’s my obsession getting bigger. Must. Learn. To sew.
