Weekend Sewing Accomplishment

I confess. I used sewing as a means of avoidance. I just couldn't face grading student work, so I avoided it and spent some time sewing. Little Missy is coming from Michigan to Kentucky for Thanksgiving. I wanted to get a couple things ready before she comes.

First, I made a pillowcase to go with my Lori Holt Row Along Quilt.
I bought some white flannel and used leftovers from this scrappy quilt. I used the tutorial found here. Little Missy is coming for Thanksgiving Weekend, so I wanted to have something special waiting for her.

One special event we have planned for Thanksgiving Weekend is to make a gingerbread house. Little Missy is really looking forward to it. We did this last year and she is really looking forward to doing this again. I made a reversible apron for her to wear when we make our gingerbread house.

I don't have a pattern for it. I just made it up. I found two dishtowels at my local craft store and made them into a reversible apron.
I made this into a very adjustable apron.
The ties can be adjusted as desired and then tied. This apron will grow with her.
Here is the back side. I wanted to find a less holidayish fabric, but at this time of year, this is the best I could do. I guess I'll just have to make a different one for Little Missy to use at other times of the year.

Thanks for stopping by.
