It was so much fun making this apron! I thought you would enjoy meeting the designer, peeking into her creative world, and learning a bit more about the pattern.
Won't you all join me as we talk to Molly and take a peek into her creative and artistic world?
I'm curious, when and how did you learn to sew?
So, what is the most challenging thing you have ever sewn?
Ha! I have to say that job helped me determine that couture sewing for others is not how I want to spend my sewing time.
I know machine embroidery is one of your current specialties, when were you first "bitten" by the embroidery bug?
I’m wondering if you made many different variations before you brought it to market. In other words, was there much trial and error in getting the pattern set for printing and selling?
I'd like to mention that there's a really cute half apron version too! Here's a montage of apron photos showing how other sewing enthusiasts used different fabric options.
I actually have a huge room dedicated to sewing. It is still a work in progress, but I love spending time in there. The room was originally a garage, made into a master bedroom, now transformed into a sewing room. The ceiling is very high and there are windows. Always room for improvement, I need more lighting, and the walls could maybe be painted a happier color. The good part is that all my supplies and equipment are contained in one room and I can close the door when I’m done! The photo shows one wall decoration and by the way the scissors are real . . . I got them at a garage sale :)
I also like weaving baskets, chair caning, and oh yes . . . raising chickens for their eggs. You asked for some photos so here goes!
Do you have any parting words or a special sewing motto you'd like to share?
