Oh. My. Goodness!  Shocked
The is amazing!
I grew up reading Calvin and Hobbes and this looks JUST like him!
I am super impressed! I would try to make it myself but there's no way it would look this good Tongue

Are the buttons sewn or glued on?

The majority are sewn, but there are certain parts where i needed to over lap the same color (because of awkward spacing and what not) In that case I just glued one button on top of the other two  Smiley

It's moderately heavy, but still wearable Tongue

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!
