    I get tired of the little strings getting a ride with me all over the house so I made this apron to cover my front while sewing. Now I need sewing booties and I will be all set .... LOL!

    This was also an exercise for me to learn to hand sew all that bias binding without showing a stitch on the front side. Whew ... That was a lot of binding!

    I think it came out great ... How about you?

    The front with miles of self fabric binding

    This is made with the seams covered with binding in the front...

    It's really nice. You did a lovely job and I love the fabrics. And I know what you mean about little threads. What a good solution.

    I saw them (all the little bits) referred to as quilter's jewellery!

    Pretty! And what a great idea!

    Why is it I always seem to be wearing black when I sew?
