With school about to start for me, I have been in a frantic sewing mode. I am working on a gingham apron for the apron challenge. I found some adorable brown and pink gingham at Hobby Lobby. My only complaint is that there is no 100% cotton gingham locally! Sewing it is proving tricky since the gingham lines don't always run true to the grain of the fabric. I am also trying Chicken Scratch for the first time!
I found some pretty retro feel fabric at Hancock on the 60% off table. I think it was originally $8.99 a yard. The more expensive fabric definitely has a better feel to it. My husband laughs at the way I like to test the feel of fabric! My plan is to use the fabric for prize aprons for the Cookie Exchange Party my sister-in-law and I host in December. I posted a photo of the fabric further down the site.
