Vintage Style Apron


I have a knack for starting up a project, getting all the materials together, getting maybe 5-10% of it completed, and then promptly putting it in a plastic bag to be forgotten about for months.  There was a point when I had about 7 of those.  Well, I've been doing a much better job getting through them lately.  One I just entirely gave up on (a dress for my niece.  It was far to complicated in retrospect for a newbie like myself.)  Anyway...the point is that this apron was started back at the beginning of the year.  I finally sat myself down and it took probably.... hmmm 2 hrs?  If you add on planning and cutting from the initial start I would estimate 3 hrs total.

Car Caddy!


Awesome.  So this only took me 6 months.  o_O  Well to tell the truth I finished it in about a couple weeks but then decided it needed buttons.  The buttons took me 5 months to do. :-P (Don't judge me!  This was my first time making a sewing machine button hole and using a button hole foot [pretty tricky]!)
