Apron Making| Motor Speedway Apron

Follow my blog with Bloglovin 

Hello friends!  Today, I share with you my handmade Motor Speedway Apron!

Did you know that I am a NASCAR Fan?  I simply love the sport.  I'm a fan of Jimmie Johnson, seven-times champion at NASCAR's highest level, driver of #48 Lowe's.  I've cheered the drivers from the stands of the Kentucky Speedway and the Bristol Motor Speedway.  Well heck, I've even participated in a drive-along on the Kentucky Speedway because I'm just that kind of girl! (Hahaaaa)

What I Did:  I drafted the apron pattern from the book, "The Perfect Apron" by Rob Merritt.  I simply adore this waist apron with its victory lane patchwork to which I added green bias trimming to signal a beautiful start, like the green flag waving a the speedway.  I underlined my apron in black and white check, symbolic of the winner's flag!

What I Used:
1. Novelty Cotton Fabric - Victory Lane Patchwork from Joann Fabric.
2. Keepsake Calico - Cotton Fabric - Large Check, Black and White from Joann Fabric.
3. Green Bias Tape.

I wonder if Danica Patrick, the most successful woman in the history of American open-wheel racing, driver of #10  Aspen Dental, would like this apron?!?  Happy crafting everyone!

Hi Friends!  Have you ever had a week that was just fabulous?  Well, it was one of those weeks for me. Just Look!:

1. Went to Studio BBC in Nashville, Tennessee and got a great new haircut.  I'm loving my new bangs.  Fatima Hunter-Brown is my stylist and she does fabulous work!

2. Went to the Metro Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, Tennessee  to see Sting in his 57th & 9th Tour.  It was an awesome concert!

3. Spent quality time in my sewing studio.  I'm experiencing so much happiness since changing my crafting focus!

4.  Experiencing much excitement with the progress of my Windmill Quilt.  It's a log cabin quilt and this is my layout.  I have four more blocks to complete!

Wishing everyone a great weekend. Happy Crafting!
