Les Tabliers / The Aprons

Je vous avais dis que je ferais des tabliers.
Ils sont basé sur le patron gratuit que j'ai trouvé sur le site de Martha Stewart, mais, au lieu de faire un pli pour former les poches, j'ai fait 2 parties pour ne pas gaspiller mes précieux restes de tissu et je les ai jointes avec 2 coutures et un surjet au fond.
Ils sont déjà vendu, j'aurai même pas le loisir de les essayer pour nettoyer la maison!

I told you I would be making aprons.
They are based on the free pattern I found on the Martha Stewart website, except I didn't fold the fabric, because that would have used up too much of my precious leftovers, so I made a top and a bottom part and joined them with a double row of stitches to form the pockets. 
I've already sold these, I won't even have the joy to try them out while cleaning up the house!

BBQ Season

Wrangler Close Up

I am an optimist!
I do believe that the weather will get better and when it does, I'll be ready to BBQ!
Remember when I said I was preparing some stuff to do with my best friend Armelle? Well, we thrifted (this is when I saw the Tweed Fairy), made some strong tea, chatted and refashioned. In my case, a €0.50 pair of jeans with a wonky zipper and some scraps of Alexander Henry Wranglers fabric left from the His & His pyjama pants got a new life as a funky apron. Armelle chose a long skirt to do the same.



I've got a bit of a headless guy on top there, but you know, scraps are scraps. And speaking of scraps, We also made some of Laura's Pincushion Rings

Aren't these the cutest? Perfect size for the girlfriends' mending kit. They are such a great gift idea.
