First Lesson

Turns out there is a reason why the pattern layouts call for certain pieces to be cut out when the fabric is folded.

This lesson was learnt when on Saturday night I went to attach the second side of my apron to the middle and discovered that I had cut the pieces out the same way and so I had two right sides and no left! Of cause I didn't have enough fabric to cut the again so it meant another trip to the store, lucky for me it is only 5 minutes down the road!

Other than one-side-of-the-apron issue, I am pretty happy with how things have gone so far. I will admit that a friend who knows how to sew did come over to guide me through, lucky because I would have been pretty lost without her. I probably could have worked it out *cough* u-tube *cough*, but it was quicker and much more fun with my friend there holding my hand so to speak.

 The apron so far
So now all I hav to do is the left hand side, sew on the facing (think that is the word) and sew on the straps and buttons. Hopefully by the end of the week!

What was your first lightbulb moment?
