Projects List...Check. Check. Check. Check. Check

A couple of months ago I had several projects on a list
that either Needed to get finished,
or that I Wanted to finish.

The first one is this full apron.
I wish that I would have taken a picture
of the whole thing, but...
I didn't.

A friend asked me if I would make this
for a bridal shower, for her friend's daughter.
No pressure or anything...
I saw a picture of the Bride-To-Be
modeling the apron at her shower.
She looked adorable.
(But she is one of those girls who
would look cute in Anything!)

The pattern I used was the
Amy Butler "Domestic Goddess" pattern.
Amy Butler - Apron Sewing Pattern - Domestic Goddess
I love this pattern and have made many
half and full aprons from it.

This is a garbage bag for a car.
I made one for me and for several friends.
They were a big hit.
Why not make garbage pretty?

This is a simple little apron.
So cute on!
My Lovely Mannequin, Nina,
was a perfect model for this apron.
She is just so confident...

Look at this custom sewn pillow case.
I got the free tutorial from
She always has so many fun projects,
Love It!
The front and the back of the pillowcase
are different fabrics.
This was suppose to have a crocheted edge.
I do crochet a little bit,but for the life of me-
I could not get it.
So, I bought this edging.
I really like it.
Is this SO cute, or what?!?

My cousin, Becky, asked me to make these
name banners for two sisters.
They were having a baby shower/birthday
sister party.
These were very fun to make.
The only thing that I may have
done differently is used black
thread to sew on the letters
so that they would show up better.

Now, on to my next projects...
I have this beautiful fabric,
but cannot decide what to make.

Any Suggestions?

You do such a wonderful job on all of your sewing projects!
With the small print (dotted) fabric, a stuffed cat would be cute! For the others...pillow cases, placemats, little cosmetic bags for traveling, curtains?? the possiblities are endless...:) Have fun sewing!
