What does a poor college student in need of a decent sewing machine do when she can’t even afford fabric? Why, enter a contest to win one, of course! I was hoping to have time to transform this apron into a wrap-skirt, but sadly, school got in the way. So I’ll enter the apron, at least. Here’s hoping!
The colors are actually quite lovely, though it ‘s hard to see in the picture. The one that looks grey is a dusty, medium blue, and the other is a soft cream with a very subtle pattern which is neither organic nor geometric. I decided to make it five panels instead of three, with two pieces to each panel. It involved some measuring, but nothing too difficult… although my panels did seem to magically grow and shrink from what I thought I’d measured. But I made them work. :)
Old bedsheets, probably cotton. :) Eco-friendly and cheap – what could be better?
