I travel about 30-40 minutes to and from school everyday depending on the time of day and traffic. Mornings are reserved for prayer and planning of the school day. Afternoons I allow myself to sew in my imagination. I think about the fabrics in my stash and dream about what to make with them. Last week I couldn't get the fabrics I used in my entry to the sew along contest for Project Run & Play's "Greenery" theme out of my head. There were just some smallish pieces left but they were begging to be used.
My thoughts: "Well, hmmmmm.....there might be enough to cobble together a skirt for Chloe, my little six year old friend. Now...how to make it special? I know! I could make an apron skirt, better yet, I could make it detachable. Wait! I could make the apron reversible! No, wait a minute... I could make more than one!"
Oh my, I couldn't wait to begin!

|Chloe with the vintage table runner apron buttoned onto the skirt with antique green glass buttons. |
The skirt can also be worn without the aprons
|Chloe said that she loved all the aprons but really loved the vintage hand embroidered one the best. I love that she loves the embroidery! |
We had fun doing this photo shoot!
I leave you with this sweet photo of Chloe and her baby brother Hudson. I enjoyed making this day dream a reality. I hope you liked it, too!
