i keep forgetting, sewing is really hard.

I love DIY blogs.  Love just scrolling back and back and back through previous posts on a newly stumbled upon (clicked on from Rochelle’s ‘Blogs We Love’ section) ‘craft blog’. I especially love the ones about sewing.  This is weird because I don’t know how to sew.   It is also weird because I KNOW how sewing makes me nutty.  I get frustrated and sweaty and agitated as I sit at the sewing machine and just can’t seem to get it to do the beautiful things that the blogs promise.  So, knowing that about myself, with my mom’s birthday approaching I thought I’d attempt a ‘ bookmarked sewing project’ for her?  This one seemed easy enough and like something JoJo would totally like and appreciate, so I tried it.  About 15 minutes in I realized it was NOT going to be gift-worthy.  Being as crazy as I am I decided that the craziness of not finishing the project would drive me more crazy than actually finishing it (both pretty high levels of crazy).  So I did.  At some point I just stopped trying to make it look like the blog and just tried to make sure it looked apron-ish and wouldn’t fall apart.  Though not up to quality standards for gifting my Ma, it is definitely worthy of me sporting while I bake!  I’ve never owned an apron and kinda like the look… But next time I have an apron urge I think I’ll just head out to Anthropologie 😉
