This Christmas I handmade most of my presents this year. While it was stressful and exhausting It was well worth the effort. Everyone was very happy, This fully lined apron I made especially for a Sister in law, it reminded me of a beer garden girl so much I wanted to give her two pint mugs to go with them.
The Brown fuzzy Trim I added was my favorite addition to the apron, it went really nice with the cream eyelet lace. I used four small bows on each end of the side ribbons that I attached with the herring bone stitch ( which when used that way reminds me of fish net)
I have always felt that having an apron tied around the waist to be uncomfortable, so I started about 7 aprons ago making them with an elastic waistband my mother who is very tiny, loves them since they don’t slid off of her frame.
Adding the pocket was difficult to line up the pattern with out wasting fabric but I succeeded, you can hardly see it, I don’t think the recipient even realized it was there .
I Happend to come across a Dahlia show this weekend, I have 3 small plants myself that have yet to bloom successfully so it was nice to see them all in full bloom. I always liked Dahlias there are so many varieties, forms and colors ( no true black dahlias though) although this one was close
so many beautiful flowers i had trouble deciding which to post so… this is going to be a long posting of mostly flowers
Seeing all of these really encourages me to grow some more varieties. I was suprised i didn’t see any dinner-plate dahlias though
The other day I received a gift from my boyfriends coworker, I wanted to return the favor so I decided to make him this bag to store his game dice in ( I know its big, apparently he has a lot of dice ) I found this great fabric this weekend I really love how it looks like they pop out of the bag in colorI hope he likes it They both work in the video game industry so I think it will go over well. This is the second lotus bag I have made, There are instructions on how to make it on a few different sites, If any one really want to make one and cant find instructions , let me know I’ll try to help
