I recently decided to sew new aprons for my two daughters, and who knows maybe one for me as well. I haven't sewn an apron since I was in my early twenties, and let me tell you that was many moons ago. Daughter number one likes bright retro fabrics and I was not surprised when she chose an egg yellow fabric with red cherries. When she was a teenager, like most teenage girls she was in love with everything purple, mauve and black, now as a young women she loves everything fifties and retro. I spent today sewing and was on a roll when my machine started to make clanking noises. It needed cleaning and I was surprised to see how much lint was inside the bobbin cavity, once I cleaned it out with a brush I then went looking for the machine oil and you guessed it, I have an empty container. Sewing finished for today, I have packed it away until tomorrow when I buy more machine oil, I was so close to finishing. I'm taking daughter number two shopping for fabric for her apron on Saturday and I'm fairly certain she will choose something blue and pretty.
