Sew Craft Friday

This is an Easter apron I'm making. It's a work in progress, which means it might not get done this year because I only started it yesterday. Last week, I used the bunny cookie cutter and made a pattern. I cut out a buncha bunnies, with no idea what I'd do with them. (BTW, those big copper cookie cutters are ridiculously expensive. This one was a gift!)
The 'skirt' of the apron actually started as part of a top. Actually, it's a muslin copy of a top I want to make, but wanted to do in cheap fabric first to make sure it fits. (It does!) I don't throw my trial outfits away, but cut into the muslin for smaller things. But I was looking at the wide cut of this bodice and thought...apron! So I cut off the top half, cut the back open and added some hems. Really, all I have to do now is a waistband and some ties. I have enough fabric that matches the pockets for the waistband. I might have ribbon for the ties.
Maybe this will get done this year, after all! That is...once I've boiled the eggs to color, double-checked the Easter basket supplies, made cookies...
Oh, and I'm babysitting my neighbor's 4-month-old grandbaby, Julianna Sophia. I haven't heard a peep out of her. Every time I check her, she smiles at me! What a happy kid!

lol Being that the bunnies were so expensive, it's good that you are getting use out of it in different ways. lol Who would have thought that something for the kitchen could double for the sewing room. I can't wait to see the finish product. You made me laugh to think that you cut out a whole bunch of bunnies not know what you were going to do with them. lol Thanks for sharing.
