Hi everyone!
This is my first post, though I've been lurking for a while. I finally took some pictures of projects I've been working on, so I thought I'd share them. I'm new to sewing -- had a sewing machine for years, but it wasn't until I found craftster that I was inspired to use it!

This is an apron that I made for my husband. I made it out of a men's button-down shirt that I got at a thrift store. I modeled it after an apron that I borrowed from our local food co-op; it's a lot like the ones they wear at HomeDepot, but a bit longer. Three pockets at the bottom and a little loop to tie a dishtowel to. Let me know what you think!

Darn it!  Thanks for reminding to make my apron!  (I've only been planning it for almost a month.  Sheesh.)  That's a good idea!  Wish I though of it first!
