First solo sewing project!

Adorable sewing basket and supplies that I got for Christmas from Mom, Dad, and lil sis. Plus my new sewing machine... yay!

So I spent the better part of the day (okay, pretty much the entire day) making an apron. It's McCall's pattern M5505, part of the "Easy Stitch" series... and let's just say that for my first solo project ever, it wasn't THAT easy! Thankfully, I learned the ruffle at my last sewing class, so that helped a bit.

I think that I prefer aprons with an adjustable neck strap, so in the future I'll change the pattern to do that. Also, I need to learn an easier way of turning the straps right side out after sewing... any ideas? It's not perfect, but I tried it on and I like it. So that's a plus.

Anyways, the fabric is WAY adorable, from Fabrika Fabrics in Savannah. They have the cutest prints in town. This apron is a much-belated Christmas gift for my friend LC. So if she reads this, I've ruined the surprise, but after spending the whole day at my machine at least she'll know I put a ton of effort in. :)
