I feel like running through the Swiss Alps singing "Doe a Deer a Female Deer, Ray a Pocket Full of Sun, Me a Name I call Myself, Fa(r) a long long way to go, Sew, A needle pulling thread....." . Then later milking some cows, churning some butter and then tumbling down the hill with Jack. Sounds like a good day, right?
I think Little M would have fun doing this with his Mama. I suppose I would need to make him a little German boy outfit complete with lederhosen. I would so love to see him in that.
Seriously though I had SO much fun sewing up this apron yesterday...I just went into it recklessly not measuring or anything..crazy I know. I will admit I did cut around a vintage half apron for general sizing but that is it. I used one of my ribbons from the trim spree I had last week on the front. I think the fabric and ribbon look amazing together. The pocket is made from wool felt. Underneath the apron is a red wrap skirt I made a few years back when I was taking a sewing class. Add braids, and I'm Heidi. Oh, and clogs of course.
