Sewing Saturday

I finished my yo-yo's and they are so cute. I started making a few square ones too. Super easy.

I have to brag on my husband just a bit. He brought home his first deer of the season yesterday. I'll spare you the grusome pictures and just tell you it was a 6-point atypical buck that weighed about 200 pounds. He got this one at 20 yards with a bow. Good job honey! If you've ever been bow hunting you know how hard this is. In his entire hunting career of 20 years, this is only the third deer he's ever brought home.

Last night I cut out two more aprons. One is an apple print and the other is out of the red and white ticking. I hope to make this a reversible apron and if it turns out the way I think it will, I'll enter it in the fair next year.

I've got more Morsbags cut out to sew inbetween apron sewing, studying, and housewifing.

I hope that everyone has a beautiful Saturday.

Nice apron!! Maybe you can help me? I'm looking for a easy apron pattern, I"m wanting to make some soon and really don't want to hassle with the store bought patterns since many of you girls have complained about them? Any ideas or sites with free patterns? Thanks so much! All your aprons are so cute!

Thank you Sue!

So far I've had lousy luck with McCalls and Simplicity.

The very best one I've found is Kwik Sew #3396. This is the one all of the girls are using.

I haven't seen too many free patterns online.

Good luck!

Sue, if you want super easy but nothing fancy, I'll put together instructions for the one we made in home ec in high school. It takes all of 20 minutes to sew. If you want pockets, you're on your own. This one is pocketless.
