My first project

I don't know about you but looking inside the envelope of a dress making pattern at the moment makes me want to run and hide.  They all look so complicated with wiggly lines and symbols.  I think I need something fun and easy for my first project.  After hours of searching the net for inspiration I think I have found the perfect item.  I like to think of myself as a domestic goddess in the kitchen (I'm not really) but we can always look the part right?  I decided the missing item in my wardrobe was a cute apron.

Now we get to my favourite part of the whole process shopping.  I looked around a number of sewing and fabric shops when I settled on a kit for the Berry Apron from Millie Moon.  It is a beginners dream, it comes in a sweet little box with everything you needed to make an apron, it even have swatches on the outside of the box so you can choose the one you like the best.                           

This kit was perfect for me, it came with a little instruction booklet which had clear and easy to follow instructions, there was a colour pictures to show you what each step should look like.

With every thing to hand, I cranked up the 80s music and got stuck in. In About 2 hours I had an apron to be proud of and it was wearable.
