My Farmgirl Work Apron
Ok, so I received some beautiful cowgirl fringe from a good girlfriend of mine, and I needed a work apron for Hancock Fabrics. The girls at the store all have made their own short utility aprons with a couple of pockets, using pastel cottons and bias tape for the edges and pockets. I asked if I could make my own apron, and they said yes. I then asked if I had to follow a designated company pattern and she said No....anything you want is fine. She then said, "Do you need a pattern?" I then thought: "Pattern? I don't need no stinkin' pattern!!" But I said, "No thank you." And headed directly to my favorite thrift store a few doors down and found these men's denim painters pants and added the trim and used a little bit of my precious Farmgirl Fabric!! I have a scissor holster and everthin!! I guess they are going to think I'm weird right from the start, but I want to maintain my weird side!! LOL
I've also got plans for a punk apron. I found this great pair of baggie black zippered punk pants with red trim and a skull zipper pull. AND some black lace over a red sparkle stretch fabric. (The fabric was on the .99 cent table at Hancock Fabrics today.)
More later...gotta go to bed.
