I decided to make myself an apron for Valentine's day.  I got the fabric practically for free from a place called Leftovers etc.  http://www.leftoversetc.com/  It is a place that is for teachers, Sunday school teachers, and home schoolers to pick up supplies for crafts.  It costs $4 to fill a medium size brown paper bag.  That's a lot of fabric and buttons.  I've also found some really cool vases, books, patterns, patches, all kinds of stuff.  Next time I go I'm getting jars to make terrariums.  Anyway back to the apron...


Here is a picture of me cleaning up my mess after making cake truffles for my BF.


Here is the apron laid out flat.

Here is the back.  I sewed ruffles on some muslin that I had laying around.

Here is what it looks like with the ruffles messed up so you can see how I assembled it.

I am a ruffles and feathers kind of girl. 

The other night I was at a party and my boyfriend was explaining what cuteoverload.com was and I told my friends that I think it is ridiculous...
a friend said, "so says the girl with a huge bow in her hair!"

That's when it occurred to me that I'm pretty feminine.

it is! This year my family had a "green" christmas.  We bought american made goods, gave to charity, and made presents for each other.

So that was a headband from my sister-in-law. She made one for me and my two other sisters.  Mine was the prettiest one!  Here is a better picture.
