I thought it might be fun to go through all my photos to see all the aprons we have made in our sewing class! It is amazing how all the girls have advanced and are now sewing garments for their children, doll clothes, burp cloths, purses and so many other things. I am so proud of each and everyone of them!

The pattern has a half apron and a full apron with a variety of 3 styles. This one even has a loop to hold a towel! The ties are long enough that they can be tied in the front or the back. It was easy except the directions for the pleats that are in between the pockets are not very clear and neither were the diagrams. I just winged it! The fabric I purchased at Tall Mouse. It is Timeless Treasures Fabrics, era c 4993. All in all I will defintely try the full apron!

We are learning how to applique in our sewing class and I wanted to make a cupcake that looked good enough to eat!
Wouldn't this be cute for a first birthday? Now for a blue one for little boys! One little boy in particular that has a first birthday in November!
After I made Amy Butler's Business Card Case I decided to try a wristlet. I had made a few zippered pouches and decided to design my own pattern and make it have rounded corners. I also put a pocket on the inside (which I forgot to take a picture of - sorry!) Hope you like it! I may make more and sell them in my Etsy store!
I was perusing Amy Butler's website and came across this free pattern to make a card case. It turned out adorable. The only problem I had was that my velcro squares didn't line up exactly and you have to install them before you assemble a large portion of the pieces. I also found that that one side was a bit too long to fold into the inside and had to make adjustments. I am going to attempt another one to see if maybe it was user error! Take a gander at her site it is so inspirational to those who love to sew! Her web address is: amybutlerdesign.com/products/free_patterns.php for her free patterns.
After looking at many tutorials on making camera accessories I decided to attempt making a lense case for my zoom lense and a camera strap with a pouch for my lense cover which I was losing on a regular basis much to my husband's dismay. So what do you think? I know it is hard to see the pouch in the bottom picture but if you look in the bottom left hand corner you can see a little envelope attached to my strap. I am going to attempt a pouch for my flash next. Wish me luck!
