Tie One On ~ Apron themed after a Musical

The current TOO theme is to make an apron inspired from a musical. And of course I take every single opportunity I can to do something spooky...and The Nightmare Before Christmas is a musical!!!! mawhahahahahaha!!!!


My apron is based on Sally's patchwork dress and even has a little pocket for collecting deadly nightshade. My new sewing machine has a special stitch function that is all about not being perfect and is all jagged on purpose...don't know what it would be used for in the real world of sewing but it was perfect for the look I was going for with this apron.

I know it's hard to tell in the picture but those white things hanging down from my hair are the little black ribbons with skelly-head beads tied into my pig tails that came from miss amanda button!

Here are few more shots that don't really show off the apron much but are still suitable for framing (in my house at least)!

Frank told me he didn't mind me sprawled out on his grave, if you were wondering, he actually enjoyed it.

okay, back to adventures in "Oh, Andy!" and watching out for loaded goats in the next post!

I love the new banner,and must say you have truly elevated the blog to an art form. A quirky one, but in my opinion there the best kind. You must look at other blogs and think "they'll let anyone on the internet". Oh well, baby steps,right? You give us all something to aspire to.
