It came out like this (worn by Kenzi, a friend's grandaughter in Alice in Wonderland as one of the Queen of Heart's attendents.)
These were a special order for a Strawberry Patches customer for her nursery.
4 baskets lined with a mix and match of 4 fabrics.
Very fun to do, as I used to do a lot of basket liners and hadn't done them in a while.
Four of these aprons to take to my friend who has the gift and antique shop in Long Beach, Ca.
I did the machine embroidery only on these. The aprons came from Walmart. I used to buy them at Smart and Final, but I like these much better and the colors were a little brighter. And only $6.00. I'm thinking I could embelish these with some cute fabric and trims too...well not these, because they have been delivered already, but certainly a creative thought or two went through my head.
I also started the cutest little baby outfit and hat this week, but will wait to show it when it's finished.
That was the sewing part of this post. The cool down was getting to go to Long Beach to deliver the aprons, take my friend MariEllen out to lunch for her birthday and bid on a JOB which is a kitchen addition and remodel for her cousin, Lana, who is her partner at Aunt Fanny's.
After temperatures in the 100's all week here in Bakersfield, the cool beach air was heaven.
It's always a little nostalgic going to Long Beach, because we grew up and were married there.
Tomorrow we go to Morro Bay another cool beach town for a golf tournament for Mr. SS and some R&R (and maybe a little shopping) for me. We have neighbors who have a house near there, where we can stay and enjoy the coolness.
Don't forget, if you haven't entered my giveaway go here and leave a comment.
It will be open until July 31st.
