Pink-ish Pinny

I recieved my free supply from WholePort last week, I chose Pink Rose Lace from 9 different crafting supplies that they're giving for free (incl shipping)but all we have to do is to create something from the supply they sent and join them in their Create-a-thon creativity expo that they're having right now and post what you made from the supply to their facebook to get another chance to win $50 cash coupon on their website. So, before I submitted what i made with the Pink Rose Lace they sent me in their facebook, I'm going to post this here first as my submission to Pink Saturday.

As soon as I recieved the goodie, I was browsing on the internet for ideas and inspirations, I'm so happy that I found something that I want to make with it, Thanks to MorganMoore for creating a cute valentine ruffled apron and sharing the tutorial on how to make it. The slight problem was I don't have a sewing machine and I almost changed my mind and make something else withough doing any sewing.

But i already fell in love with the apron i saw and I already have leftover fabrics that i've been meaning to use for quite awhile now, so with determination and telling myself that anything is possible...after 4 days and more than a hundred times being stabbed by the needle and bruised fingers...i finished the apron.

the stitches are messy, the ruffles aren't perfect but i'm pleased with myself and i rewarded with a sewing machine for my birthday this september, as hubby was worried (or maybe took pity) with the amounts of "ouch-es" i produced while he was watching TV.

That's it from me, goind downstairs to cook lunch and will stay indoor today as it's raining outside and i guess it'll be a wet weekend again *sigh*. Wishing you all a nicer weekend!


  1. I like the new look of your site..the drawings are so cute :)

    Wow, great job on the apron..I can't believe you did that all by goodness! Your poor fingers though, I hope they have started to heal up. There will be on stopping you once you get a sewing machine :)

    That is one of the sweetest looking aprons I have is too cute :) If I had one so pretty, I would be afraid to get it dirty when I bake (I am a very very messy baker!!).

    It sure is wet and rainy. Here is hoping for some sunshine soon! Have a nice weekend :)

  2. Hi Susan..I love your apron, it is just are on your way to great things girl..If you move up to a sewing machine the sky is the limit!!

  3. This is a darling apron and no sewing machine used makes it extra special. I like the new blog header in black/gray (grey) and white. Is that something you made yourself?

  4. Just came upon your article and will certainly have a look at additional ones. Seems like real good stuff.

  5. That's so cute! From the Pink Saturday preview, I thought it was a skirt and thought how cute it'd be on one of my little girls. Maybe a thought for the future! :)

  10. Susan, this is a fabulous apron!!! I do like aprons, too, and this one is sooo you ~ cute and fun! The fabric is perfect for the cheeriness of the whole piece. You did beautifully. I've sewn quite a few of my clothes by hand...before I had a sewing machine. It's such a feeling of accomplishment. You'll get one's in the air!
