3.00 Shirts Revealed and Apron & Dishcloths

Shirts number 2, 5 & 6 were all 3.00 from the Goodwill on Reynolds Rd!!! Can you believe it? I love them. I also got a Evan Picone (sp?) outfit for 4.00. I could have worn that to the wedding but Rick did not like that the top matched the Capri pants. It is beautiful however :)

OK, on to the wedding shower. I was asked to bring an apron and tea towels for a gift basket (and our gifts of course). So I made this apron and then I put binding around two tea towels so they would match the apron. I really like the apron (pix is a little blurry...and I'm not saying who that 6 foot 5 model was) but it really took much longer than I expected. I really like the quality of the tea towels. I'm going to add them to my website when I get back. What I would do differently next time is make the binding wider. An applique would have been very pretty too.....but time has run out...for today anyway.





So, what do you think? Let me know. I may not be able to moderate comments for a few days....but I'm interested in hearing what everyone thinks.
Smiles,

  2. I once had an Evan Picone blazer that I wore until its utter death! I wish I still had it, and wish I still had the figure to wear it!

    Love the apron...the colors are great and so cheery!
