I made something!

I made something!!
You may remember back to this day when the bloggers came over to visit...and I bought a sewing machine especially for it. Well that was over a year ago, and sadly I haven't used the machine much. But that all changed recently. I had a brain wave to make an apron for my brother's Christmas present.  I googled apron patterns and thought I could give this one a go.
I found a "Dummies guide to sewing an apron" at Spotlight. Thankfully I knew the chick on the counter so she could at least tell me what fabric to choose! Paisley Jade knows that I get panic attacks in the fabric department of Spot light (joking...just a little..)
Geez Im such a moron...I could barely follow the instructions...So I mostly winged it. I used the Dummies guide for the basic apron but made the waist coat part my self. I used cooking paper to make my pattern on.



Its starting to come together...

 My little brother in his new apron.

We had Christmas with my family at his place the Saturday before Christmas day where he was hosting our delicious lunch. He put it on and used it that day. 
 He is a great cook and loves dressing up...this apron suits his personality to a tee. 

The icing on the cake was when he asked where I bought it from! I said it was handmade...he said...but who made made it? I said ME! To which he replied...You could sell these. 
Oh yeah! great compliment right there. 
Maybe I don't suck at sewing after all....
