Gingham, lace and polka dots

My Maw Maw and I spent the day together tackling the sewing machine. There is a lot to learn, I have discovered and I won't learn it all in a day. It was a great time to bond with my grandma though, and I love our finished product. I think I am going to start saving for a nice sewing machine. The one my mother-in law gave me does the job but the motor sings a hum of it's many years at work. But momma you were more than awesome for passing it down and I am very appreciative. I will get my use out of it.
I told you that I would post a picture of the finished product of my 1st vintage/funky fresh apron....so here it is. I realized that I will need to buy thicker fabric and learned some do's and don'ts. But overall I think it turned out precious! I might actually monogram it at the top in hot pink to match the bows and ribbon. Either way, I think this apron will always be special to me because my Maw Maw and I worked at it together. So, what do you think?


The white is eyelit lace and the ribbon has white polka dots on it. It is hard to make it out in the picture, but the material is white and green gingham. It's so adorable in person.

I love it! It made me cry.
I will start saving money too!
I thought I'd look at sam's online to see if they carry any...I also thought about schools and colleges sell theirs and they are always awesome with lots of features.
You will do awesome with your aprons and I expect presents presents presents when you make your millions!
I love you both
