Several months ago I found this adorable old tea-towel at a thrift store for 99 cents. What a deal! I knew it would be perfect for an apron and I finally got around to sewing it up.
I love the print...the little country animals and tools make me happy.
What I like best about it is that it's made from a tea-towel so I don't feel funny about wiping my hand on it or getting it dirty. It'll be easy to throw in the wash with the other towels.
To make it, I simply attached fabric tie and a matching pocket (more for cuteness then practicality). I put two little box pleats in the front of the towel for a little fullness but I've seen them without that too.
On another note, we got a dresser for our bedroom!!!! I am so happy. The amazing thing about it is that we weren't planning on buying a dresser that day...we just happened to drop in at the Salvation Army one day, and they had just gotten this dresser in the very day before, and we could afford it, and we both liked it! I think it was God working all that together to answer my unspoken prayers and longings for a dresser. I can't wait to get all my clothes out of the closets and organized into it.
It's a really nice big dresser with lots of drawers and it fits perfectly along the empty wall in our bedroom. It's solid hardwood and is wonderful shape.
