Hi - my name is Robelyn (aka: red.neck Chic) and I haunt Valarie's blog... it's fun over here! I am SEW honored to lurk and loiter - and now duct tape all of YOU in Valarie's land of creative genius!!!
I am notorious for my cooking skills. Seriously - I'm notorious with the local fire department and my home insurance company... a legendary chefette in my own mind... I am generally banned from the kitchen - but I adore aprons!!! I wear one allllllll day long at my "pay the bills" job (which is NOT behind the stove at a 5-star...) - and of course the apron has to be pretty! What could POSSIBLY be prettier than a vintage pillow case? I use them to make aprons (it's sew easy!), pocketbooks, skirts... nothing as mundane as making my bed. ~geesh~
I figure you can cook - and maybe you will be B-B-Q'n over the long week-end (if so - what time should I be there?)? Or... perhaps gardening? OR! Maybe you just need a pretty apron? Here you go:
Start with a vintage pillowcase - fold it in half with the pretty border inside - then fold it back again about a third of the way down - the pretty boarder outside.
Stitch it straight up the sides, then...
Voila! two pockets! But - you're not done yet.
In keeping with the fact that
I just layered a couple of strips and stitched them right across the top! Then...
add some pretty buttons - 'cause you HAVE to have some bling!
How's THAT for being a SEW easy project?! And look - even if you can't cook you could still hang your apron on the barbed wire fence... pretty up the 'hood.*big cheesy grin goes here*
Now - I'm off to see who's B-B-Q'n this week-end since the fire department has put crime scene tape 'round my kitchen - but I sure hope YOU have a wonderful and relaxing Memorial Day week-end full of duct tape and giggles!!!
Comin' to you LIVE from a single-wide where I can't thank you enough Valarie for lettin' me park the single-wide in your backyard and
