Countdown to craft show: Part I

May 19, 2008 at 6:45 pm 2 comments

I feel like I’ve done nothing but sew for the past five days! But I’ve gotten a lot done for the upcoming craft show (13 days!), so it’s been worthwhile.

My favorite item thus far is this apron.


I ricked and I racked ’til I could ricrac no longer. (Literally. I ran out.) Damn, I love that stuff.


The back is lined in a simple khaki solid. I put so much detail on the front, and I thought making it reversible would take away from that.


Also worked on a couple of Luna Satchels.

I have no idea what I’m going to be able to accomplish between now and the craft show. My plan is to just get as much done as possible without driving myself completely insane. Tall task — I tend to be really good at driving myself (and poor Alex!) insane in these situations. I get a little yippy and anxious. Doesn’t that sound fun?

Off to sew!
