I've had it in my mind for a while to make a housekeeping apron for myself and more recently I decided I wanted a tablecloth for our dining table. These are wants, not needs, so not a high priority, but just something I browse for when I'm at the thrift store.
A couple days ago, it happened. Looking through the buy/sell/swap page, there was a listing for 2 king size flat sheets and a super single fitted sheet for $7. Two solids and a geometric print. That'll do! Sold!!
I'm quite please with how it's turned out.
Tomorrow, I'll spend some time looking through the patterns I've saved on my pinterest board http://www.pinterest.com/anndenee/sewing-apron/ and make a plan to either wing it and design my own pattern for the apron or spend the bucks on buying a pattern. Actually making it will be a project for either Tuesday or Thursday.
