I love how aprons seem to be all the rage nowadays. My Mom uses one all the time.

I'm going fabric shopping tonight to get some yardage for crib bedding and curtains. Can't wait!!!

The bag is wonderful! I'll go see if I have any extra pattern fabrics...

Ever since my grandma found out that I was pregnant, she calls at least twice a week asking me what I want in the nursery. She's DYING to help me make all the bedding for the baby...It's way too soon to tell if we're having a boy or a girl, but this diaper bag should help tide her over until December when we can find out. Thank you!

Ooh thank you. I've been looking for a great apron tutorial to use to make aprons for all the girls in my family for Christmas. This is perfect!

I've got two bags on my list of things to do this weekend! Those are cute, although I'm not making any of those. But thanks for giving me permission to take "clean bathroom" off the list!!

That bag has gorgeous lines.
Which begs a question:
Why is it so hard to find a moderately priced, kindly sewn, ruby red canvas bag with gorgeous lines?

Awesome Answer: BECAUSE I HAVEN'T MADE IT YET.

Excellent find!

All I want to say thanks a lot for trying to tempt with these delightful projects. I really need to clean a closet and a basement but the apron is cute and I checked out the tape and it is awesome!
