Suzie, my sewing machine, has been MIA.
(I give names to all my "stuff / things", that are dear to me)
I took my machine outside
for a little summer, fun sewing.
Ahhh, so enjoyable.
The following story started about a year ago.
Kimmy, my daughter, asked me to make her another apron, just like
the one I made her four years ago.
(click on below for story)
This time she requested a very specific flowered, patterned material.
I started looking in every fabric store.
I would see something, get excited and send her a picture.
Time after time, it wasn't quite right.
This went on and on.
I even looked when I visited Seattle!
We thought with each new season, something might pop up.
Fall, Winter, Spring and now Summer, nothing!
Then one day I was "touring" a thrift store.
I saw some fabric and knew it was really close!
I quickly sent off a picture to Kimmy.
She liked it!!!
Now, I'm going to have to tell
her where I found it!!
This is our text conversation:
Kimmy: Where did you find it?
Me: Don't laugh, a thrift store.
Kimmy: (sent several Emojies that are laughing, very hard!)
😂 😂 😂
Kimmy: (still laugh,)
Kimmy: That's great!
Me: And it's 30 per cent off of $6.00!
Today, is Old People Day!
Kimmy: "Is it on a bolt?"
Me: No. Now...don't laugh!!!!
It's a King size SHEET,
at least I think it is!
Kimmy: (laughing hysterically!!)
It would be pretty funny if someone comes over and
says, "Hey I use to have sheets like that."
Me: (laughing, so hard!)
I think it's a bed cover, not a sheet.
What ever it is, it's BIG.
Well, I bought the
bed cover, PLUS the window valance, too!
If a little is good,
A lot is better!
So, not to let anyone down,
I now have enough fabric that I can make an apron each family member, a dress, and still have left overs.
This is the long awaited Cobbler style apron.
