Sew-n-tell friday...really late

Sew (hehe).... today is Friday still it is 11:18pm and i was reminded about sew-n-tell. I finished something yesterday for my Halloween costume! It's an apron, it is called construction distraction. I found it when I ventured into Peggy Anne's quilting store in Concord last weekend. I have been thinking about buying the pattern for a while when I saw it on her website here. I had decided that i was going to be Kelly from the Disney show Handy Manny. Yes i am 21 years old and my boyfriend and I love the show Handy Manny. Today i went and finished buying the stuff for my costume! So here is a picture of the apron I made:

I tied it around a lamp shade haha. So all the fabric is Amy Butler. the lining is a home dec weight fabric, and the pockets, and ties are just a regular cotton fabric. It is totally awesome and i really like how it came out. I could of chosen to do scallops on the bottom but the flat look went with the character so that is what i did. You can order the kits online and i think you can order just the pattern too. It is really sturdy and I like it a lot

This week I have also been working on Garrett's costume, but I am not aloud to post about that because it is supposed to be a secret, so you will all have to wait until after Halloween to see it!

One more picture of the apron:

Happy sewing!

Peace & Love J-me

So cute. Love the fabric! The lampshade made a good model, I imagine that's how the apron would fit a cartoon character. :)
