She wants to make some curtains and I'm sure it will be able to do that, but she also wants to learn to sew clothing, and I wasn't sure it could go over those seams. I have been wanting an apron with ties long enough to wrap around front and hang a towel over them. When I'm cooking, I swear I wash my hands every five minutes. Chef's on tv just wipe their hands on a towel, so I thought I could do that too. Except after eggs or raw meat. Ewww.
While searching for fabric, I opened my scrap denim box and found this old dress that no longer fit, and thought I could make it into an apron. Sorry, it seemed silly to iron it since I was going to be washing it after I clipped the edges.
And here's how it turned out after cutting out the back, putting a few tucked rows across the bottom, clipping them, and adding a new neck back, ties, and ruffle out of a floral fabric.
I'm a little concerned that it might be too warm, but I can hang a towel on it, and it will protect my shirt from splatters.
So here is my official chart showing how little sewing I actually got done.

Also this week, I've decided to start posting my stash buster report in hopes it will keep me working on the stash.
