I thought the grandma cookie jar was a nice touch for the picture. I hope Mom doesn't see this before Sunday; it would ruin her gift surprise!
I used this Butterick apron pattern-- I combined details from a couple views to make the apron you see here. Isn't that bird fabric sweet?
I did the whole thing during one class. My friends were laughing at me sewing so furiously. It's been a while since I've made a garment and I just wanted it finished!
Happy Mother's Day Mom! You are a wonderful mom, grandma and great grandma! Love You!!!
I have also made quite a few sewing and quilt projects around the house. Besides making quilts, I like to make home accessories. Here are a couple to share---
This is a small quilt table topper. I got the pattern for this little octagonal quilt in Quick Quilts magazine a few years ago. The topper is pieced together, then the flowers and stems are machine appliqued on. I used various scraps to make this pretty spring quilt.
I arranged a couple of my knick-knacks in the photo. I learned something new, too. See that interesting silver thing? It's called a 'muffinerr' and it is used as a sugar shaker. I just like the unique, exotic shape and details on this silver plated pretty!
Finally, I'm sharing my quilted pillow. My friend Weezie gave me this awesome orange butterfly fabric. It's a great combo of things I like... butterflies AND the color orange!
I made 5 large squares with triangle corners and 4 nine patch squares out of scrap fabrics. Most of the scraps had butterflies on them too. If you ever want some free quilt square designs, take a look at Quilter's Cache Quilt Blocks Galore for hundreds of FREE designs and instructions.
Thanks for visiting the Sunset Coast today for a little sewing project tour. Are you working on any sewing projects or quilts?
Have a Happy Mother's Day!
