Sunday, I spent a very pleasant afternoon helping my daughter make a Christmas gift! She is an accomplished knitter, painter of pottery & quite a good cook. Seamstress, not so much!
I posted previously about visiting my favorite Quilt Shop for some project supplies. Melissa decided to ride along. While we were in the shop, she saw an apron that she loved. She decided she could make these as gifts that would be useful and pretty. "Will you help me Mom?"
How could I resist? It was fun to coach her through the process. Way back when, she took sewing in school, and has made a couple of things through the years. So, I really only needed to be nearby to answer questions and help her get familiar with my sewing machine.
I love the fabric she chose, and the the apron turned out very well, don't you think?
Now, I'd better get busy on my project before she walks in with the fabric for more aprons! The 'ole sewing machine is gonna get a workout this Christmas! :)
