SEWING MACHINE APRON

Sewing Machine Apron

I was at the local library looking for some children's books when I stumbled on some crafty magazines in the corner. I wasn't really interested in them (I thought it was all about knitting, crossstich or croching etc.)

Anyway my daughter was browsing some childrens books by her self (she won't let me choose for her *sigh*) and I sat down near those magazines. When I started reading the cover I saw "Handmade Craft, Decorating, Sewing", and then I saw saw a tutorial about making a sewing machine apron. So I decided to borrow 3 of the magazines but I have only read this tutorial so far.

I'm not actually copying it exactly. I used more buttons for decorations on the pocket, added more ric rac and used less fabric. I used one large piece of fabric with iron on interfacing for the background and simple seam for the sides. I guess I can always modify this with more and bigger pockets, decorate with more buttons and ric rac, add an applique or even make the pocket just like those pocket organizers. I also attached some velcro to my sewing table and on the apron itself to keep it from falling down.

It's amazing how one idea can lead to another. Just set your mind free and let your creativity go wild! ha..ha...

  2. A: The pictures you sent of your cutting boards indicate to me that they are probably from the 1950s or ’60s. The design seems to be handcrafted. I would suspect they would sell in a shop or at an antique mall for about $15 or $20 each. Kitchen items have become popular with collectors and prices have increased in recent years. For example, mixing bowls, cooking utensils and even pie birds have doubled in price during the past decade. Click here

  3. This is a really good idea. My daughter is 13 years old now and she has been struggling with an old sewing machine for a while. We thought we would get her a new sewing machine for Christmas. She will need it for her textiles classes at school anyway, but this would be a really great project to her started on her new sewing machine. Thanks.
