Anyway, I have been busy at work with lots of special orders. I am posting a few pictures of some of those and ya'll are some creative people. I love to try new patterns and ideas. Sometimes it may take awhile to "nail" them. (because I am a perfectionist when it comes to sewing) The superhero capes seem to be Numero Uno on the list of orders.
Then I got a special request from a friend (who is an art teacher and very good at it) for an art apron or smock for her children. To be honest, sometimes I have no confidence in my sewing skills because I am self-taught. I was NERVOUS about this one. I got a pattern from here
and went to work. After I was half way through...I WAS IN LOVE! I love,love, love this idea. Thank you Kirsten for your suggestion and I hope you love them as much as I do!
