my sister modeled this first chunk of photos, as she is drafted in to every time i sew something. so here is her "photo cred"... just look at that smize she has. tyra taught her well.
i came across it (actually my mom did) when i was shopping for the fabric for betsy's airplanes apron for her october bridal shower. i thought about buying it right then and there, but decided to wait until the bridal shower was closer and then go for it. i think i hoped for a black friday sale or something, but nope. nothing. the apron takes five fabrics, and since there were only four i had to come up with a way to either find a coordinating fifth, or just deal with what was there. so i decided since i liked the bandaids so much, i would use it ALL OVER this apron. i made it the belt, as well as the second and fourth ruffles. yep. super happy with it. it helped break up the stark white-ness of the rest of the apron. yeah, i know. white, such a great color to use around cooking... but since amy just finished her nursing degree and landed a job that officially starts days after the wedding, it was all so appropriate.
