Singing and Sewing, listen to the words not just the music Friday 2
Okay, so last night I remembered that my 1st grader was suppose to have a red shirt to wear to flag day this morning...........oops, however I did have the makings, and it was just this week that mom embroidered a little red flower and said I have had this for years and just got around to doing it, do you think you can use it in your shop?? She only asked that I let her know what I did with it, since mom made it nooooooooo I cannot sell it, it is now a family heirloom............and mom happened to give me some red and white checkered napkins to work with. So last night after putting her to bed and doing chores I started sewing. This was completed at 1:00 Friday a.m. so technically is a Friday project. I sang as I sewed humming to the tune of "oh say can you see", and " I'm proud to be an American", (Love Lee Greenwood's version!) and I drank iced coffee to keep me awake. Here are pictures of our School's flag day and my little one sporting her Red napkin shirt! When I woke up in the morning I was still inspired and started on an apron "American Beauty" I came home and worked on it as well singing Love Can Build a Bridge!
|Daughter and her close friend|
|Side Two of "American Beauty" I also sewed on some of Alice's buttons|
A napkin shirt! Sewn like a pillowcase dress but shorter with apron trimmings, see mom's embroidered flower?
|I went home after flag day and still loving working with the red and the american spirit I sewed "American Beauty" |
This apron is completely two sided and has beautiful embroidered red roses on front.
