Something to Do While It’s Quiet

I just wanted to warn you that it’s going to be a little quiet here for the next month or so.  I’m taking a little break from updating this ...

Works for Me

Ever had an old pair of overalls you didn’t know what to do with.  I had a pair that were actually cute.  They had cute zippered pockets that were useful and all, and they had red Velcro instead of the usual metal button things on the side.  The Velcro was the problem though, because it kept coming undone.  Here’s what I did to make them more useful.photos 034

This is my work apron.  Neat, huh.  Before I tried this, I had converted the overalls into the a jumper, but I got tired of it.  I just cut off the front and stitched on a band made from scraps of fabric for ties around the waist.  The one for the neck is just knotted around the button things on the bib.  Love the Tweety Bird fabric.  I used some more scraps to make a matching scarf to tie my hair up.photos 035

Now here’s what I did with the back half.  I  just folded it in half and stitched down the side and the bottom.  Then I attached both overall straps to the top.  Now I have a tall bag that can fit my umbrella easily.  And as you can see, the cool zippered back pocket doesn’t go to waste.
