No Way! It's a Garden Apron.

Hmmmmmmm. "What is this?" you are asking.


Meet "Ole Bessie." I am not certain, but I think she is older than me... My mom passed her down to me this year and told me I had to make SOMETHING!


Here's a view up close and personal.


Remember the sewing tutorial last week on the gardening apron at Not Dabbling in Normal? Well, I got motivated. One trip to JoAnne's Fabrics and I was set. There were some lovely bovine ladies and bandanna material that called to me like a siren.


I have only sewn about four times in my life that I can recall, but I gave it the old college try. Following the instructions carefully and asking SIL Suzi from Savy Suzi some questions I got through it in about 1.5 total woman hours.


Now how cute is this????


Well, if you like Holstein cows and red handkerchief material it's cute. Otherwise you might just think it's horrid. That's OK. Taste is subjective, right?

So I'm bad and armed with my snippers. Watch out errant limbs and stump sprouts! Here I come! No weed is going to escape my notice now. I am like Wonder Woman except with an apron. I will tromp out all evil vegetation in our valley...



Hello gorgeous Ceanothus. I love you! And you smell good too.

I think you could make this apron with a Barbie sewing machine and a kids ruler. Really this was simple. If I can do it, you can too!

If I make another, does anyone want to win one?

AND

There is still time to enter the GIVE AWAY for the mom and daughter aprons from Twinklebelle here! What are you waiting for?

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Even though I am not partial to cows, I love this apron in it's entirety. Perfect for the garden - and probably won't show much dirt, either. You made cows look cute. I'm impressed.

That is terrific. I love the cows. Congrats on your new found seamstress powers!
