Beth's Apron


Today a worked on an apron for my cousin Beth to wear to Silver Bella. When I was young and my Mom taught me to sew , we made ruffles by hand  basting and pulling UGHHH. With my newish Jonome I have a ruffler foot. But of course I would not read the instructions  as to how to use it ,so it took ten times longer and I went through about 7 needles as well as my patience. But in the end I got it to work and the apron I hope will look great on her with her big blue eyes and blonde hair.

This is so funny because I too have taken out my sewing machine and discovered at least 3 other artist friends doing the same. And...none of us have read the manual, we just sew.
The apron is amazing and she'll love it.
xxoo
