If I may just tap myself on the back here real quick...*tap tap tap*
I DID IT!
I've never EVER cranked out so many finished products on the sewing machine in my life. Aside from my costume pinafore, which was not meant to last, this is my first experience with sewing handmade gifts. I made two of the four tuck-ins, one to match the apron and one to match my partners collection *wink wink*
I won't spoil the surprise by showing the tuck-ins cause if my apron swap partner takes on look at them she'll know exactly who it's for!
But I can show you all my finished apron, modeled by my lovely work bench chair. Please ignore the disaster that is our garage. I just moved in! (And I'll continue to hold that excuse for the next few...m...years.) hehe
If i could, I would make an identical one for myself. But believe you me enough blood, sweat, and tears went into this one that it's gonna be awhile before I attempt another. It's harder than I thought! Doesn't help when you have a temperamental sewing machine. So...
I want a brand spankin' new sewing machine.
