It's All About Me

My photo
Old enough to know better, but at age 50 I started a second career as a Mixed Media Artist. Inspired by a friend who suggested I research Altered Art I found what I do, and what I need to feed my muse. I have been published* I have been purchased* I have been SOLD! at an exhibit* I have been invited to share and teach* I have been blessed that I have friends who "get it";

Work and Play Aprons

Since my Grandson "hot rod" likes to cook and also likes to work outside in the garage and in the yard

He is getting a few "tools" from his crafty Grandma.

After deconstruction of a denim shirt for another project I saw the potential as a pocket and neck strap

And the remains of the trench coat worked well on the other apron. along the same lines.

And a good excuse to clean off my work table and set it up for a cutting table... worked great!

The pattern was posted on  sew much ado blog, and I will have to find the link

  1. An artist after my own heart. Re-purposing discarded clothing is my passion. For Christmas I have made numerous bags for grocery out of old clothing. This apron is awesome. Love using button holes,too and old pockets.

  2. Thanks Faith!

    nothing is so rewarding as re using an item and making it into something different

    I had an incident with a sweater that was almost a disaster, but I will keep working on it because I LOVE the sweater...

    If I had hands that allowed me to knit and crochet ... but I have yet to pull out my felting needles... lol..
