That dress shirt your husband never wears anymore.....inspiration for my new apron, Tangerine Sorbet.
The table runner you found in a bag of old things your elderly Aunt owned and you had no use for.......I saw it as a fabulous embellisment.
I added a tiny secret pocket for small treasures and even left the shirt buttons intact for added interest.
UPDATE on this Apron: SOLD and on it's way to Utah!! I love it!
Your little ones grew up and no longer wanted the white cotton duck shower curtain in their bathroom. I immediately saw it as a fabulous beach tote with enough room for all your towels and snacks. On the inside I finished the side seams in the French seam style and the bottom has a decorative ocean blue bias tape trim. Very pretty and clean looking. My double handles have pretty stitching and are reinforced for durability.
I fell in love with the whimsical fish and the muted colors. I used quilt batting and created two puffy fish for texture. It had been washed so many times that it is now very soft and weathered....perfect.
I put my mark on it and will be sending it off to my Etsy shop. Maybe someone in California, Florida or the south of France will think it is the perfect thing for their family beach outings.
Hanging on Millie my mannequin you can see how large it really is. Because it is so soft and unconstructed, it can be folded up to a small bundle and tucked in a purse or glovebox or suitcase for travel. How convenient! I have more of this fabric...what would you think about maybe a Giveaway for one of my 'Beneath the Sea' fishy totes?
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
