the panda sews (and sells!): an apron

i had an impromptu yard sale last weekend & wore one of my homemade aprons to stash all the cash.  a neighbor lady inquired about it, and she ended up custom-ordering one from me! i greatly undervalued/undersold it/my time, but i was so flattered that i didn't even care.  she wanted longer wrap-around straps & 2 pockets.  i completed it minutes ago, and just rode my bike up the street to hand-deliver my very first sewing sell! 
i am still getting all my ducks in a row in order to set up an etsy shop, and i will be sure to keep you posted when this idea actually comes to fruition.

i hope so. she DOES have a sarah palin sticker on her car, so you never can tell with those people. ;)

Congrats, way to go! It looks awesome!!! I bought that same fabric for an apron for myself in the red/pink/blue color scheme! Did you use a pattern, or make it up as you went along?

when i started making aprons, i loosely followed something i had found online, but they've since evolved into their own thing. i've done a few different kinds & i'm trying to figure out which one works best!
