I Made it Moday: Sister's Apron

My little sister LOVES Orange. It's a problem she's has since junior high, and we see little hope for recovery. She recently painted her bedroom bright orange. I can only imagine my parents were mentally counting the gallons of primer they'll need to un-do it when she moves out.
For Christmas she received a hope chest, and to help her start filling it, I made her this apron and a set of tea towels. The butterfly fabric is made from a women's shirt I found. The style of the shirt left something to be desired, but I love how it works as an accent for this piece. The tutorial is available free at Spool's blog . It's a good one.
Did you know that my 5-year anniversary is coming up on Friday? This week I'll be writing out the story of WBH and me. I hope you'll like it. Check back for that later today.

bahaha you're so funny. SYKE.

PS: I have to repaint the room myself when I leave. So there.

PSS: There are now lovely orange gerbera daisies atop the hope chest. They look lovely against the color of the walls.

AND TO ALL YOU RAD READERS OUT THERE: My room is not an ugly shade of orange (if there ever was one). It's a very calm, tranquil orange. Thankyouverymuch.

I love the apron.

Of course, I love orange, too. Which is one reason Erin and I are cosmic twins.
