I found this fabric on the 50% off table at Mom's and couldn't resist it. I thought it would make some cute aprons for 6 little girl cousins. So, here are the girls in their aprons learning how to make some Easter Rice Crispie Treats with their Granny.

Another link (or two...)

This blog has the coolest "sew-along" with week by week instructions on everything included- choosing fabric, fixing cutting mistakes, piecing a back, putting the "quilt sandwich" together, even free motion quilting on your machine. You can find it here:

Also, I just ordered some fabric from, and they had a smoking good clearance section. I ordered five (or ten) yards that was only $3.59/yard. Their new stuff isn't bad either- I needed some of the Moda Sweet line that they didn't have in town, and they had it for only $7.50/yard.

Another cool shopping find is . They carry fabric lines that are a little older, but super cheap (mostly 3-6 dollars a yard.) Also, they have 108" backing fabrics starting at $8.95 a yard.

Yes, I do other things besides playing online. Sometimes. Just not today.

I'm not sure how I neglected this site before, but I've just planned out five future projects I must do from these fun patterns. Someone smarter than me (so pretty much anyone!) can add a link in the sidebar.

Now I have more excuses to keep buying those fabulous little charm packs! (Not to mention jelly rolls, turnovers, etc...)

Hey, Carolyn! (and anyone else who likes aprons...)

Have you looked at any of these apron patterns?

Maybe one of those would work?
