Our first turn will be the second week of February…we’ll remind you when the time comes and give you all the details about how to get yourself some of the fun fabric. Until then I have a little confession and a little something to share.
See..when Elizabeth and I were at the Riley Blake Headquarters they made the mistake of letting us into their wonderland of a crafting room. And in that room they had piles and rolls and folds of beautiful fabric and we just couldn’t help ourselves…and I just had to try out some of their sweet laminated fabric.
I only took 1 yard of 2 different designs and had enough to make myself a crafting apron:
I liked the large flower print and used that for the body.
But I have a thing for polka dots and had to use some of that for the giant pocket along the bottom.
When I was finished I realized that I still had enough left to make a matching apron for Grace:
She was pretty happy about it.
Her apron is just like mine but with the fabrics in opposite places.
But her favorite part was the giant pocket in the bottom.
I’ve never sewn with laminates before and I have to say that it was really fun. Now my mind is whirling with all the projects that this fabric would be great for.
I have more that I could go on about but I better go…the baby is stirring….so I’ll just wish you all a happy Tuesday…and hurry to go grab my soda before she wakes up!
Hooray, for exciting news.
