Well, here are the things I have been making. They are simple, not complicated, but they look just fine, and will do nicely for gifts. I hope.
And then there are the aprons for the adults too. I used Christmas fabric for these. This is one of the smaller ones. I saw an apron in a coffee shop (belonging to the waitress) which looked simple to make, so I borrowed it, and an old newspaper and traced it there and then, and then came home and made a proper pattern. And about 10 aprons. They too have large pockets.
And this one is a bigger longer apron, which is more like a Cath K one belonging to a friend. I made a few of these too. With the large pocket, of course.
These are two of the Recession Heaters. Rice stuffed inner tubes with fleece or flannel covers, which you heat in the microwave and then use to keep warm. I made them the year the world plunged into recession, and gave them away as gifts, and they have been a great hit. My friends have still got theirs and use them constantly - and ask for more too!So there you are. The stuff going on here in the RCR sewing room. Nothing complicated. But fun to make.
And welcome to any of Kelly's friends who may have popped over to visit! You are all very welcome. If you leave a comment, I will be sure to pop over and say hi too!
Day 20: I am thankful for my garden - the joy it brings me - even in the quiet winter season. The miracle of growth. The promise of the spring. There is always hope in a garden.
