Apron-o-logy

On Thursday morning I attended an Apron-o-logy class at Scrappingville. Very messy with paints, acrylic inks and stamping :-) We started with a blank apron & painted it, splattered paint & acrylic ink over it then started stamping :-) Great fun. I am sitting on my chuff in this pic trying to dry the ink splats so I can start stamping.


I finished my apron last night - I tell you hand sewing is not really my thing! But I used invisible thread hehehee ... that helps hide a multitude of sins LOL The ball trim & flowers are stitched on.
Here's some close up of my flowers - last year when I was in Singapore for Creative Escape I bought 3 Donna Downey badges ... and thought to myself that they would be perfect for my apron :-)

And a tip ... don't let your 2 1/2 yr old daughter anywhere near fabric butterflies because she pulls of the antennas!!! I have stitched them on, but they just don't look the same hehehee
And had to show you this pocket - see the "wording" stamp in the top left corner - it actually says "embrace imperfection"! LOL (I had a bit much paint on the stamp ... so I am just embracing it and going with the flow!! ;-) Although I did cover up another wording stamp with the green flower because it was just totally unreadable and looked more like a big smudge!).

Really enjoyed the class ... now I just have to be brave & wear it and hope I don't get it dirty heheee :-)

Thanks for visiting.
