So a few years ago now, DH & I had a vow renewal ceremony... beautiful of course cuz I planned it, catered it and made everything myself. I bought everything one would need to do such a thing and try OFTEN to find ways to use everything again.. for instance, we eat off the same plates I bought to cater it, we drink from our wedding glasses often, bought a cake server & decorated it, took off the decor & use it all the time. Decorations often double for Christmas decor since it was early December and I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas time. The cake pans allow me to make mockups often of the wedding cake I made, etc... So... I needed an apron cuz I got a lot of baking to do and I thought, maybe I could use my table napkins & leftover decoration & table trims etc I took these napkins: and some ivory blanket trim I used on some other decor and presto... apron: The ivory matches my dress well, the stitching is similar to my DD's dress which was half ivory & half black (to match me & her dad) and of course the red was everywhere... I figured they would hold up too since they are napkins after all!!! I used 3 only. It even has a little flap like my daughters dress did just below the waist and over the skirt... So proud of me! LOVE having a working sewing machine!!!!!!
