Starting Over

Last month I threw this clearance material into my Connecting Threads cart with the intention of making an apron.

This apron to be exact.

 The worst part of this pattern is cutting the large pieces you need for the body and the liner. Numbers are not my friends.

 See what I mean? Those two pieces are supposed to be the same size. Grrrr......

 I even know what I did. I measured one of them from the wrong side of the cutting board. I do this all the time. You would think I would check but nooooo......

 Thank goodness there was more of this material still on clearance. I ordered another yard of the stripe that I ruined. While I am waiting for it to show up I'll just work on the straps. Sounds like a plan.


  1. We've all done it! It is very pretty material-it looks like an entry in the KAL to me!

  2. I call those kinds of mistakes --- stress brain errors. Too much rolling around the old noggin to keep up with the little things.

    Glad you could get more of the fabric.

    The little pumpkin fabric is too cute!

  3. You are giving me ideas here.....I need to make some new aprons. You are such an inspiration to me. I'm off to Jo-Ann's. ;-)

  4. I love the pattern you're using! That's going to be a super-cute apron!

  5. I am so glad I'm not the only one that cuts things wrong!

  6. I do that all of the time when I sew, which is why I don't sew very often! Ha! That being said, I love that material. It's perfect for fall.

  7. The material is so fun! But you just reminded me why I am incapable of sewing. I can't so much straight, cut, sew draw etc, yes, even with tools. I'm a bit of a hot mess. Good luck lady!

  8. I'm another one who does that. Great fanric! Glad you could get more.
