Well I’ve been on the road.
I’ve been working on this Breaking Bad series. I’ve been waiting until I could get them nicely photographed to post, but that’s turning out to be tricky. So please forgive the weird pics. I have a few pieces in progress, and some more ideas ready to roll. But I tend to let the perfect be the enemy of the happy, a habit I’m breaking.
I made this apron, which I absolutely love. I’ve never worked with this kind of fabric before, plus I’m working out of a van, so it was a little boo boo on my part to let it get wrinkly in the dryer. I had this whole thing in my mind of ironing it really nice and hanging it from the side mirror of an RV, with the big sky as a background. Totally convenient in terms of my ability to stage the shot, if I could’ve gotten it pressed nicely. I might have to take it to a dry cleaner to press. Not a bad idea.
This is just one of the $5 aprons I got in the sewing department at Wally’s. Next one I do will use thicker thread. Better durability, and faster sewing too. I used perle cotton for the stitching, which is filled with chain stitch if you are wondering, and a little blue crystal for the glint. More to come in this series!
