Learning to Sew with the help of Mom!

Remember how my mom came and visited me a week ago?  Well, she's SUPER handy to have around for someone who wants to learn how to sew all things and doesn't know how to sew more than a straight line! While she was here, we decided to tackle an apron...with a pattern!  Talk about scary!  Remember, I don't know what I'm doing, I just got into all of this stuff!  There is NO way that I would've been able to do this had she not been here to talk me through all the sewing lingo and pattern rules that are out there.  But, after successfully making one with her watchful eye directing me, I am confident that I could make another!  Here is my reversible apron:


And for good measure (because I had leftover fabric and I'm obviously obsessed with making these things...):

Happy Sewing!

  6. The apron is adorable and a great first sewing project. And what a good idea to trim your hand towels to match.
