Recent Sewing Projects

I saw a quote the other day, "Once I learned how to sew I forgot how to cook" That's how I feel sometimes. This week Joe has been working over time (like 15 hours every day), so I have put in a lot of hours at my sewing machine.

This is an apron that I made for the lady who is teaching a bread class for Enrichment. She used to own a Bosch store, so she is doing her great demos for Enrichment for 6 weeks! After 3 years of making "brick bread" out of 100% whole wheat, I made soft nice 100% whole wheat bread after attending her class. I thought an apron would be a nice thank you. This is kind of a hokey picture... I am not taking a picture of it on me, and I don't have a mannequin or model. But I think you get the idea. I loved the vintage fabric, and it is reversible. The other side is made of the polka dot fabric you see on the pockets. The pattern is called "Church Ladies Apron." I had visions of all-day relief society that you hear about in legends. (Ha ha ha... yes, I am young enough that I have never done anything but the block schedule.)

These are two more of my favorite baby blankets made of the "Little man and me too" line of fabric. I just love these! They will work for boy or girl, right?

The other project I am working on right now is comforters for the girls new bunk beds. I found some great sheets on clearance at Shopko and Wal-mart, and I am just going to make tied comforters out of them. With all the materials, they cost less than $20 each, and will be better than the $40 that I found. I'll let you know how they turn out!


  1. Adrienne, have I mentioned that you are amazing.

  2. Love the gift idea - I think I'm going to make my midwife an apron.
    And that quote is true - I totally lose track of everything else when I'm in sewing mode and then it's mac and cheese for dinner.
