I don’t know if I am just an old fashioned girl, or perhaps just a particularly messy cook but I pretty much always wear an apron (or pinny, as my nan would have had it) when I’m cooking, especially when flour is involved. I was surprised to learn at Christmas that my mother-in-law doesn’t own a pinny, despite being a self confessed messy cook. So, I have made her one in time for Mother’s Day this Sunday. Here I am modelling the said apron:
I’m pretty pleased with it. It’s the first time I have made pockets, or a scalloped hem. And I made my own continuous binding. Which seemed like something of a magic trick 🙂
Incidentally, the top I am wearing was made by my mum from Vogue V8536. She made it for herself but decided it was a bit too small so gave it to me. Hooray!
Waif has also completed his latest sewing project, a stuffed owl called…wait for it…Owlie :-). It’s the biggest thing he’s sewn so far and I think he did a great job. Here’s Owlie in the wild:
And, as you can see, Owlie is the perfect size and shape for cuddling:
