I tanked on the kids sewing challenge...

So I only ended up doing one night of sewing for my kids...not great news for my creative spirit, but the appearance of a huge bag of hand-me-downs from an old neighbour's son made it difficult to justify more clothing when the drawers and closets are already stuffed with garments. I still plan to fulfill the spirit of the challenge, but with a special outfit for each boy instead of more casual clothes. Now to decide what to make!

Since I wasn't sewing for the boys, I started knitting a cuddly afghan for a friend's new baby, and finally completed an apron that has been sitting in my UFO pile for ages. It's cute on it's own, but doesn't look super cute on me. Oh well, it'll still keep my clothes clean(ish) while I cook and bake, so I guess that's what counts. Sorry for the bad nighttime photography.

I like the fitted bodice and rounded yoke on this apron, but find the actual apron part is a bit short. Will definitely make it longer if I make another apron in this style.


  1. This apron does look really cute!!!
    Did you use a pattern or did you make it up yourself?

  2. It was a pattern -- Simplicity 3670.
