Next I made myself a "pancake breakfast" apron from 'Simple Sewing' by Lotta Jansdotter. Every few months I help serve pancakes at our local Son's of Norway pancake breakfast and felt the need to individualize an apron for myself. Off to the fabric store I went and much to my delight, I actually squealed out loud in the store, there was the perfect fabric for me. Covered in pancakes dripping with syrup and other goodies was my apron. It is reversible so I cut out some pancakes and appliqued them to the other side. Et voila...I can hardly wait to debut my creation at our next breakfast.
Then this past weekend I took another class at my sewing store and made this really cute shrug. The material is a knit which I've never stitched on before. I was really worried that I would mess it up but the fabric turned out to be much easier to sew on that I had thought. So now I want to make this shrug pattern again and again. You can adapt it for long sleeves and to make it longer in the body. It is an
e-pattern from http://sewingworkshop.com.
All in all I'm very happy with my sewing so far even if I am...
"a very busy woman and I haven't got all day".
