Ever happen to you?

So, I was anticipating my day of play with Margie Romney-Aslett and I decided I needed a new apron for the event. So, I went through a pile of old jeans that had been given to me by my Dad and found the pair I would use. I had seen the idea on a blog somewhere, ( if you only knew how many blogs I stalk daily and all of the amazing ideas I have saved).

This is the apron I made and I was very happy with it. Sure, I plan, in Mimi style, to add some more lace, ribbon and bling before I can call it complete.
That’s Coco modeling the apron. So, I like to name my dress forms. Don’t judge me.
I went to bed that night with happy thoughts of wearing my new apron. La la la.

I awoke the next morning in a creative friendzy, with an idea in my head that almost hurt to keep inside of me. I’m serious! Initial thought, overalls! I had to make an apron from an old pair of overalls. Not just any overalls, my favorite overalls. These overalls have been with me for so many years, through pregnancy, through ups and downs. They are like an old friend. That is why it had to be them.

So, I worked feverishly, all day until this is what I came up with. As always, I still have more that I want to do to it but I SO love this apron! This is Sophia modeling the apron.

Never fight those creative awakenings Ladies! Hope you had a great weekend. I can hardly wait to show you what I made while wearing this apron. Thanks for stopping by! XO, Mimi
