Okay so the weather has been cold and miserable lately, not that I am complaining, I will never complain about having rain..
A lot of time spent inside watching the rain fall through my window,
There was mending waiting to be done, so it was out with my sewing machine,
and while I was at it I decided to revamp a couple of old aprons that I had picked up from various op shops in my travels.
These aprons were half ones which I am not keen on wearing (because I am way too messy) so I added a top and bits and pieces to jazz them up.
I added a green gingham heart top to this one with some red buttons and a yoyo flower on the pocket.
Next I took this pink gingham one....
and added a calico top from recycled curtain material I had hanging around, added blue buttons and hearts with some coloured buttons to the pocket.
This one is a vintage handmade apron that didn't have any ties.
Again out of old curtain material I added a top and some ties.
All in all I am pleased with the results, and I have been wearing them which was the purpose of this exercise.
Next I hope to make a bag out of some black trousers that my daughter had worn out in patches. I have cut the legs off and am still deciding what type of bag with I will turn it into. I will post some pics when I get it done.
I am also contemplating doing some knitting and crocheting. I have many things unfinished (UFO's) in my cupboard, which means that unless I actually get them out, they will never get done.
