When the original Wabisabi Mama was visiting me from Japan a few months ago, she helped me make an apron for my little girl. And when I say she helped, I mean she did everything--created and cut the pattern, prepared the edging (I don't know if that's even the right word) and set up (threaded?) the sewing machine--so that all I had to do was press the foot pedal. She even pulled the shoelace (yes, shoelace--isn't that brilliant?) tie through the edges.
Here is the result:
Pretty good, right?
Okay, okay, I'll show you the truth in a close-up shot:
Let's just say the curved lines of an apron were not the easiest thing to do for my very first sewing project. Luckily, my 11-month-old will never notice. Even luckier, I got a sewing machine for Christmas! Looking forward to improving my skills and hope to have more projects to post about soon.
