Wasn't sure where else to put this so I guess it goes here. Its not really clothing and not really for the house.  

So I decided that to make gardening easier when it came time to planting I needed an apron to be helpful. Found the right one in One Yard Wonders then went to my stash of fabrics. The right one immediately leaped out at me. I got this mushroom fabric in the fabric market in korea, and now that i have made something with it I want more and cant find anything similar  Cry  any ways I just followed the instructions from the OYW book and it was super simple to put together.

 Sorry the pics are so bad used my phone's camera because I couldn't find my nice camera. Hopefully better pics to come. The only hard part was putting on the binding. I was using 1/4" when I realized I was supposed to use 1/2" but I didn't have any. SO for now Ill rock this, but when i get the bigger size binding i will put it on and it will be perfection.

It has two levels of pockets, the top level divided into two larger pockets on the end and one smaller on in the middle perfect for holding a paintbrush or pens and pencils or something narrow of that nature. the second lower pocket is pretty big, its hard to see but it has two pleats allowing for much stuffing of goodies Smiley Dunno if I will include the pleats next time because all of the gaping, Ill have to see how useful it is. then it also has two loops for holding tools.  

I am very pleased with this, perhaps just because its spring or because I just <3's the fabric. Please let me know what you think.

I keep looking online for the fabric hoping I will stumble across some more but so far no luck. If I ever do I will be sure to share. And thanks a lot, If it stopped raining I would go outside and use my apron and get some action shots.
