Here is the fruit of our epic sewing marathon! I love the little birdie, die cut out of fabric!!
If you’reÂ like me, OCD and type-A (my poor husband), before you make any purchase you dig deep, deep, deep into the bowels of the internet, (ewwww), to read every review possible. Â Well I wanted to contribute to your google hits, and hopefully help you make a decision if you’re in the market for a sewing machine.
If you’ve been following my posts this week, you’ll know about R2D2, and my new embroidery addiction.Â Well I couldn’t stop at just R2.Â
My burlap wreath tutorial found here has been by far my most followed tutorial, I’ve had a few follow up questions, specifically about how to make the bow and where I bought the materials.
How about an apron, nicer than the outfit you’re cooking in? Â Stylish aprons have made a huge comeback. Â If you’ve been to any trendy cooking shops or even clothing stores lately you’ve likely seen them, often with sexy curves, cute materials and often close to $100 a piece. Yikes! Â Part of you has to wonder why you’d be wearing a $100 garment to save your pyjama bottoms from muffin mix? Â Most of us don’t cook in our Sunday best. Â If it is a special occasion we quickly run and change in the minutes after the cooking is done and the company arrives. Â But all practicality aside, I love these fancy aprons and I’m guilty of forking over whopping price to Anthropology, only to get it home and say (what I always say) I could have made this myself.
