Hey craftsters, my name is Carrieocity Kills and I am a rollergirl with the Arch Rival Roller Girls in St. Louis. One of my team mates last season turned me on to your website (Hey Bambi Bloodlust, we miss you!) and this is my first post. that's me in the pink wig below.
We had our first bout last weekend and my team, the Smashinistas, were the host team- which means we set up/breakdown, take tickets and sell merch and raffle tickets. Our uniforms are camo and hot pink and so I wanted to make aprons to match- that werent too long or matronly so as not to compromise our tough girl style:)
Check them out, I think they came out cute! in fact, one of the other teams asked me for a pattern (but I didnt use one) so that was cool.

I learned how to make the ruffle on the top right one by checking out the projects in your apron swap thread- but i put darts in it which made it come out kinda poofy. So, I cut the other 3 into the shape I wanted first, then double sided them and embellished to my hearts desire. I hope you like them- I had a lot of fun making them:)
Next I am going to make bibs for my grandfather who is in a nursing home. Kind of a sad task but I hope to make him something neato (with his name on them since they tend to lose things- boo!)
