One of the local JoAnn's fabric stores is closing (Publix bought the whole shopping center and is evicting them so that they can expand) and I got 10 patterns for various things including aprons. All of their patterns (except Vogue) were $1.99!! I don't usually use patterns...I tend to buy them and then just make it my own anyhow. They are never just right for me. :) I got some books on knitting and crocheting too. I am attempting to learn how to knit and crochet. I really want to learn how to knit because there are so many cute things that you can make. I don't have children and probably don't want any, but I just love all the cute little hats and blankets you can make them so I can make them for all of my friend's kids. :)
I am also in the process of finishing two adorable glittery cupcake aprons for two adorable little twin girls who are in kindergarten and love to bake! I made their mommy an apron for her birthday and they love it and always make sure she remembers to wear it when cooking and baking. Now they will each have their own yummy little cupcake apron!! I will post pictures when I finish them. I just have to attach the straps. I am using grosgrain ribbon for the straps because it is so hard to make little fabric straps on these tiny little aprons. I bet little half aprons for little girls would be absolutely adorable!! I'll have to try one soon!!
