Welcome to Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday, and presenting my First Finish of 2018!
This is only my 2nd time hosting (last was in October 2016, followed by a desert in my blogging presence). What this means: you, too could be a volunteer host. Do you have a New Year's Resolution to try new things? Break out of your comfort zone? Head on over to the tgiff link to sign up for a volunteer week (or two).
|Happy birthday, cherub!|
My finish this week is not the result of weeks or months of tedious work. Nah, that would be the item I thought would be finished. This week I celebrate a quick make: an upcycle (and a gift for my youngest cherub).
Before: a pair of Hawaiian print shirts, purchased at a thrift store because they reminded me of my recent vacation. Actually a bit difficult to find said Hawaiian print shirts in cotton--mostly they are rayon. But cotton is the better choice for an apron designed for actual kitchen use.
After: cute halter apron!
I couldn't find the instructions I used the last time I made one of these, so I just based my cuts and stitches on the apron at hand. (I wear that one all the time.)
Made things intentionally a bit bigger, to better fit the recipient, but still threw a couple box pleats in the back. Hope she likes it.
Now it's your turn: Link up any finishes for this week and don't forget to stop by some of the other finishes--leave them some comment love! Grab the TGIFF button and link back to this post, so your visitors can see other dynamite finishes.
