At first, the thought of sewing an apron was very daunting. However, after a bit it started to make sense. I will admit, I was so scared and nervous. Before I left the house, I tried to tell Jay I wasn't going. He answered me with, "you paid for it, and you are going". Okay, he's right, but I have anxiety when it comes to classes. I was always the kid in the back of the class never raising her hand. So, about an hour into it, my shaking hands settled and I started cruising along.
I also learned, I need a refresher course on rulers and measurements. I felt so badly for the instructor and her helper, at my inability to cut the proper pieces. They were patient, and helped me along. I also learned, I really want a cutting mat and rotary cutter ;)
After three hours, lots of laughs, and determination my apron was complete! I think it came out cute. In fact, every one's was a success. So for all my local Oneonta friends, check out Project Anthologies for classes. As for non-Oneonta friends, check out her online store!
