The Antipodean Artisan's Story

And sew it begins

The first projects I am going to start are:
Muslin face cloths
Lining for my Lloyd Loom wool basket

I downloaded this (above) free pattern for this apron from the printsew website when I first found out I was going to get a sewing machine.  The apron looks so cute and I can’t wait to see what it looks like when I’ve sewn it together.  The pattern, however, was over 16 pages long and took ages to print out.  For some reason every time I tried to make my printer print a quick draft it didn’t work.

So… many sheets of paper later and much much time later, I had printed the pattern, laid it out, stuck it all together, and then cut it out.  Then I cut it out in the pretty fabric I have chosen, and now all I have to do is sew it all together.

I can’t wait to see what it looks like.

  1. I look forward to seeing the finished aprons too. Might consider making some for friends.
