So I'm not cleaning

Don't ever take me at my word when I say
I'm going to hunker down and clean the house.

I always manage to find other things to do.
If I feel productive in other ways,
I don't feel guilty about procrastinating with the cleaning.

I just finished up this cute little apron made from
a thrifted sheet, pillowcase, ric-rac and eyelet trim.

It is my contribution to the Collage of Hope fundraising auction.

Please go check out the other things available.
All monies raised are going to a very deserving family.

You may recognize the fabrics as the same ones
I used on this custom dress I made last week.

Sheets have got to be the most economical fabric buys.
And offer such diverse options, esp. with vintage sheets.

I saw this apron on flickr and wondered if it was vintage or if you had made it. I love it!!! And from vintage sheets to boot! My kind of lady!

Hi Julie,
Your apron is so very darling! You gotta have some apron-making while cleaning the house, it'll keep you motivated!
