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.

George I LOVE this apron!
You are as amazing with scissors as you are with a pen!

I miss seeing you around.

Hey, the voting is going on now for the ABC Competition. Have you seen the illustration Roz did yet? I just love it.

Hope you'll stop by.
