Dare to DIY- Apron

The lovely Kim over at NewlyWoodwards is hosting a Dare to DIY Blog Party

Being the party animal that I am, I decided to join in. (Cue laughter.  That was a joke. I’m a hermit.)

This week’s challenge was “Dare to Be Thankful.”  A challenge to make your own DIY Thanksgiving Project to share what you are thankful for.

I am thankful for…time in the kitchen with family.

One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is bonding with family in the kitchen either preparing the meal…or watching others prepare it.  I also love the warmth of the oven and those wonderful smells. Is it Thanksgiving yet?

I am, however, one messy lady in the kitchen so I decided to try my hand at sewing an apron to assist me in holiday food preparation. Or washing dishes.  That’s usually my job.  Who couldn’t use a cute dish washing apron?






I used this tutorial from Stitches in Play.  The tutorial was very easy to follow.  I finished the apron in 1 1/2 hours.  I think I could make the next one in an hour because I will magically learn to cut straight by then. I’m a bad blogger and I don’t know the name of the fabrics I used.  I purchased them both at Joann's.

I hope you appreciate the fact that I put jeans and a sweater on to model this apron.  I failed to wash my hair and put on make-up though.  Sorry.  It’s Sunday.  This is the only head shot you get.


What are you thankful for?  Are you an apron fan?  Who are my fellow dishwashers?
