  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi! I'm Traci. I'm a nursing student and CNA who loves quilting, knitting, cross stitch, and the great outdoors. In my pre-scrubs life, I owned Real Photography, and you can still see my old wedding and portrait photography site here .

    I've created a map that shows links to our camping/hiking/general family fun review posts that you can find here. It's pretty much the coolest thing on this site. Thanks, Google!

    I great big puffy heart *love* comments, so please let me know you visited! I try to always reply!

a day in the life apron revisited (sorry)

Are you crazy tired of aprons yet?  Sorry.  Just one more to go after this one, I promise!

I liked the last one so much I had to make one for me.  Since I know it will get a lot of use, I added top stitching.  I like that I took an ‘apron in one hour’ tutorial and created a 4 hour lined, topstitched, interfaced BEAST.

This one uses the other half of the ‘a day in the life’ fabric.  The way it’s printed is like a panel–it even has a title at the top “a day in the life” and goes though from morning up top through night at the bottom (the last line “i’m too tired honey” I cropped out for the gift apron)!  😀  I added an extra stripe to the reverse side on this version.  You know, to mix things up.  

We’re in the process of getting our first big snow of the year today, and it sucked up all the indoor light (sorry for the soft pictures!), so I took this puppy out in the snow for a few shots.
