Refashioned Apron

Apron Fabric

My first foray into the thrift store stash involves a curtain and a pillowcase that happened to coordinate fairly well.

Both pieces of fabric were really worn, so my machine had a tough time (even lightweight needles tended to pinch the fabric rather than sew it) but it’s really soft and turned out pretty comfortable.

I promise not to inflict such terrors upon you again. At least for a few days.
