I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

Making an hostess apron Part 1

After looking on line, and going shopping at cute boutiques I kept seeing all these cute hostess aprons. That sold for $35.00 to $40.00 a piece. So I decided that I could make these cute aprons and if I made approx 1-2 a month. I would have cute hostess aprons to give all the wonderful ladies in our family and teachers for Christmas this year.

So I went to the fabric store and bought this cute pattern and cute black and white fabric in the pictures above. I then came home and cut the pattern out, and pinned it to my cute fabric and began cutting out the fabric. I cut the fabric out and that took me approx 45 mins. Then I started sewing and worked for about another 40 mins, then I came to a step that made me paused - So I took a break for the day ran up here and blogged and hopefully will be back to show you the completed project on Thurs.

Hope you like my new project, (sorry I have not been here for a few days the last 2 weeks ugh! sick kids, and had to fill in at the library for a special project. Thanks for being patient with me


  1. Great idea! I think aprons(especially homemade ones), are a wonderful gift idea. I hope you show us the finished project. I like the pink side bows on your blog.

  2. I can't wait to see your finished apron. I really love all the gorgeous aprons I have been seeing around.

  3. This is really cute--I can't wait to see the finished product.

    I don't sew, but my nutso daughter has determined to hand make ALL her gifts this year, so this post will be passed along to her. (If you read this, Lauren, DON'T make me one!) I hate to cook as much as I hate to sew!
