|Normally this table is just a catch-all for, well all things. The Mister is just glad it's being used productively, even if it means it looks like this. BTW, that's the youngers "professional" apron.|
You see, the older follows in my footsteps. She also has a curvy figure with large ta-ta's, plus she's kinda short, but my younger, she's a bean pole, that towers over her sister and I, and she's blessed to have a super metabolism that allows her to eat as many cupcakes as she can bake, without gaining a pound. Something I've never been blessed with. Grumble, grumble, grumble, but I'm not bitter.
|See what I mean. They make aprons all one size. We are clearly all not the same size, here.|
|That's not master seamstress, stiching there.|
|But, boy you sure couldn't tell from a distance. Besides, she could wear a burlap sack and make it look good.|
|Here's a bad picture of the lovelies aprons. The older's is, of course the hot pink and zebra one.|
But then, I found this stuff. It's friggen amazing! You can be a total dumbass when it comes to sewing, and it won't matter. It's hem tape. Ya, a lot of you already knew about it, but I didn't. I never go to the sewing part of the craft store, there's never been a need, but oh baby, is this stuff a total life saver. It makes the aprons look so much neater and cleaner, a little stiffer, but that I imagine will loosen up, the more they are used, at least I hope they will. The ones with the hem tape on it, feel a lot sturdier than the first sewed one I did. I'm not terrified to tie the straps on the olders, like I am the youngers. It's really amazing stuff, and it makes me look like I know what I'm doing. Double plus!
|Hem tape. you just fold the fabric over it and iron. Genius!|
What have I done?
It's a good thing I don't have many girlfriends that cook, or that could be seriously overwhelming.
I'm also hoping that by making a soap themed apron for my sweet soapmaking partner, that it will spark an interest in blowing the cobwebs off our supplies and get production underway again. Slick idea, right? Yeah, I thought so too.
|My apron. I know that cuz it says my name. This is the cleanest it will ever be again.|
