september showers

Today's outfit:
SSS 09/09
my two-day sweater
bamboo jersey simplicity 4076
brown limited pants purchased secondhand
handspun/handknit socks
h&m necklace, purchased during the stone age

i made a couple of things for my best friend's bridal shower.
Sweetheart apron
Pattern: Sweetheart Apron from etsy
Fabric: Flora and Fauna hummingbirds, bought from sewmamasew; white thrifted sheet
Started: August 27, Finished: August 28

i think my ties ended up extra long because i didn't measure due to laziness. this pattern is very easy and thoroughly explained, but it has a nice professional look. i think it would be a great first sewing project. if i may nitpick just a bit, there's a duplicate page in there somewhere and a few minor typos, but overall the pattern is great and it only takes 1/2 yd of 2 fabrics.

i added 2 pleated pockets using the madebyrae tutorial. i actually did the pleats a little differently but the process was the same.

i think this apron makes a really cute, kitschy gift. i'm not much of an apron gal myself, but i would definitely make this again for future gifts.
i also whipped up this coaster set using the recipe by throughtheloops. i used leftover cotton and linen yarns and i think i used a D hook. they are easy and so addictive--it was hard to stop at 8.
