Aprons!! My Homage to Donna Downey

This is what I did yesterday!!
Well...I painted and stamped these four aprons on Friday and added the ruffle, yoyos and ribbon to them today. We needed new aprons to wear in the booth at ScrapFest next month and, with Donna Downey coming in the spring, I thought I would create a set of aprons for me and my helpers that embody the spirit of the occasion! Aren't they cute? *smile*

Now... before you start thinking that I, the NON SEWER, created something with a sewing machine..... believe me I didn't. I did use a needle and thread to do a quick running stitch through the fabric to make the ruffles BUT THEN I glued it to the pre-made canvas apron. Yep. Have I told you how much I love my 3 in 1 Glue? And have I mentioned it's waterproof and washable? LOL So, yes, this fabric project is non-sewer friendly! LOL

Hope you like and that you come see them in person at ScrapFest in Oshawa Oct 15th.
