1  Cute as a Button- Crafting Mama Apron :) in CHALLENGE 55 ENTRIES by knittygriddy on: October 03, 2010 04:29:18 PM
This contest means everything to meeeee
I hope you enjoy and vote vote vote! Cheesy



I made a Crafting Mama apron with my favorite little craft tools...
BUTTONS!


This project took me about 25 hours
and about 2000+ buttons! :O

This is after I got back from the store for supplies
[/left][/center][/pre][/left]

I sorted all the buttons out by color, 13 of them!


I made this simplified version of the Crafting Mama Nintendo DS case on 'Paint'


I put a grid over the pic and hand drew the grid on there (I couldnt find a program to do it for me :\), and counted the squares! O_O


After I ironed the apron to get out the creases, I started the long, grueling buttoning process Tongue
I put my lovely hand in this pic so you can tell the scale of this project!


a little further along...


Oh shoot I have to go back to the store xP


ALL DONE!


Me as an amatuer model Tongue (sorry these next pics are a little blurry, I had to take a picture of my digital camera screen with my phone)


Secret pockets to store brushes, etc. Cheesy


A little closer up


Peek-a-boo mama!


Side View


Detail on the sides, I added ribbon to all the straps and the little decals on the side with the jumbo buttons


I can't wait to see Mama's shining face everyday!


I had a blast with this and the apron is something I'll keep forever Smiley
Enjoy!
