Oh yes I did! I sewed something! With a real sewing machine! And I like it!
So, to give some background, I have had a recent thing for cute aprons. Don’t know why, but I just thought cooking would be so much more fun and June Cleaverish if I wore an apron. Well, when I saw the idea of sewing an apron using simply a tea towel and ribbon, I was sold. A few snips and sewn straight lines later, I marched out to model my first sewing project ever to Matt. He was far too underwhelmed for my liking. As I continued to probe him for lavish compliments, he simply stated, “Catherine. It’s an apron. What do you want me to say?”
As predicted, cooking dinner tonight in my new get-up was pretty thrilling, hence my awkward “Hey Matt, let me strike a weird wanna-be-an-apron-model pose so you can take a picture” shot. Yes, apron models raise their arms like that. It’s just what we model-types do. Duh.
So there you have it. Project #1. I asked my mom for fabric for my birthday, but she refused. I was raised to never request or accept household gifts for any holiday, and my mom says fabric is too “householdy”. I guess I won’t be getting my new laundry rack from her either then…
What other ultra easy sewing projects can I do? I’m already hooked!
