I channeled Scarlett O'hara (is it sacrilege to say that I hated that movie?) and cut up some perfectly good curtains to make this shabby chic apron for an apron swap that I joined.
I liked the curtains, but like them better as an apron. It will be difficult to part with, however, knowing I've got one coming to me gives me the incentive I need.
I had a depressing sewing day today. I have wanted to make pajama pants for a while, and thought the rest of these curtains would make some really cute ones. Two tries (TWO CUT-OUT PATTERNS, TWO ROUNDS OF SEWING) later, and I am ready to sell my sewing machine. I should have gone with a real pattern rather than just cutting around pj pants I already own.
I will update you later if I get up the courage to tackle them again...
