I'm not a domestic goddess, but I play one on my blog

And, yes, I feel the part when I sashay around the house in my new apron.

I used the Apron in an Hour tutorial from the Stop Staring and Start Sewing blog. The tutorial is very simple. My only change: I made the ties a bit longer than the pattern recommended. It took me longer than an hour, but I had lots of interruptions, and I tried extra hard to sew in a straight line. (Harder for me than it sounds!)



Mostly, I was looking for an excuse to use this fabric: Antler Damask Sky and Lodge Lattice Sky from the Deer Valley collection by Joel Dewberry. This fabric = true love.

I don't know what it is about this deer head, but I love it!

I better go find something to bake!

you are my idol, you domestic goddess.

I made that pattern for Mary and thought the ties should have been longer. Good call.

Are you trying to steal your mother's apron-making thunder? That's awesome. Now hopefully with all these apron-sewers around here...

You did a GREAT job and I'm so happy to see it made with that fabulous Joel Dewberry fabric!! Yay! I think you'll be very popular at Christmas time if you make more of these. ;)

How can you not be a Kitchen Goddess in that fab get-up. Thanks for the linky thing (currently obsessed by aprons)...

Maybe you and your mom can have a "sew off" - a competition of sorts to see who can sew the cutest apron. I will offer to be the judge.... Aunt T
