I made an apron!

I'm a complete novice when it comes to sewing.  I think my biggest fault is lack of patience, and that's a weakness I'm too impatient to work on.  I tried to take up oil painting several years ago, but oil paint takes sssooooooooo loooooooong to dry that I gave up.  I found this out when I attempted to make a panel piece (2 or more canvases that create one painting).  It's hanging in my dining room....unfinished.  I even went to a free class and some people had been working on the same painting all summer long.  Nuh-uh.  If it takes longer than an hour, I'm out.

Well, recently I needed to pull out my sewing machine to sew some tablecloths (feel free to laugh if you know that this simply means sew a straight line in fabric).  I've sewn a few more "involved" items, namely my monster crayon totes.

But its been awhile since I've done anything that creative, so I decided I wanted to make myself a "hostess apron" (aka half-size).  Using some super duper cute fabric and WITHOUT A PATTERN (though I did see a picture of a similar apron), I pulled this off:

And it only took me one episode of Dr. Phil to finish it.  =)

Thanks Catrina! Yes, I've found that when the sewing machine is easily accessible, my creative side shows up more often. =)
