So I’m having a great day sewing. I am almost finished making this adorable apron for Little Miss when I realize I am almost out of thread, NOOOOOOOOO. There are a lot of decorative stitches on this apron and it has used a ton of thread, plus I have used this same thread to sew the set of felt cupcakes (which still aren’t finished).I have to finish the binding on the apron and finish/add the pockets and I also need to finish beading the felt cupcakes. In order to leave the house I would need to shower, get dressed, dress the children, gas up the car and drive over to Hobby Lobby for a spool of thread. I’m feeling a bit lazy and I don’t really want to leave the house, wishing I had another color of thread that I could use…maybe purple, would that be weird? an apron stitched in half pink and half purple, it is just a play apron, are the sewing police going to knock on my door and force me to rip it out and re-do it if I use two different colors of thread? I think not, purple it is and I’ll save the rest of this pink for the cupcakes.
It really is turning out nicely besides the thread mishap. I have enough of the cupcake fabric left to make a drawstring bag to wrap up this apron and the cupcakes. BTW this apron is from Simplicity 2699 (expect a pattern review later this week). I guess I’ll go and load up a bobbin with purple and get back to sewing and maybe some more cleaning, I still have eight loads of laundry to fold, it’s clean, just not folded.
