The Holy Aprons!!!
I have been sewing like crazy lately on my "new" vintage sewing machines.
Part of the reason is that I want to use up a lot of my huge stash of fabrics I have accumulated over the years. Storage is getting to be a real issue for me.
The other reason is that I want to be of service to the community. So, I have gone back to making my design of aprons. Why, you ask, do I sew aprons? Well it is one item that I know will be appreciated by my area's church kitchens! And with the scraps left over, I can make matching potholders.
Over the last few years I have made and donated aprons to my home church. This last weekend, I donated another 9 aprons that I made with gray cotton twill fabric and white cotton ties. I donated these to another church -- the one my grandmother was instrumental in starting.
I have 10 yards of a nice 100% cotton chintz drapery fabric that I am thinking of using for the next church on my list. I am planning to give them to my girlfriend's church by Christmas.
