It's pretty tiny as it is (as well as being a bit grubby).

Fair enough, maybe you could spare some to wash my filthy mind.


You don't live near Eastbourne do you?

Nearer Hastings - about half hour / 40 minutes from Eastbourne.

Close enough. My friend's filthy mind is obviously having an effect.

Edit: or perhaps the reverse is true.

But how can you be sure it isn't the other way around?

I've got a leather apron if anyone wants to borrow it. Trouble is, it's impregnated with rancid tallow and aluminium dust from the fettling shop of the foundry where I used to work, so it's rather niffy. Not recommended for, er, indoor use.

Having started this off, I'd better join in.

I have piles and piles of old curtains that people have given me for some reason. I was planning to use some of those in the true spirit of DS.

I have 2 blue aprons at the minute with big pockets made from old bedroom curtains---not the kind of pattern I'd give as a gift though.

First thing I learnt to sew at school. Psychologically brain damaged against sewing aprons due to ruler on back of leg for bad hemming.

OK I'm in. I've got some turquoise cloth with big cerise tulips on.

Can't start until next week, though.

I love making aprons and often make them for gifts. The last one I made was a full 'victorian' style one for my little niece to wear when she's here with me. She looks adorable in it.
I'm in too, now to decide on what material to use and what pattern to make.........??

Is this an appropriate time to admit that I can't sew

edited to say - I like the jeans one

Thanks---saved them---much more elegant than mine hacked out of old curtains using an old apron as a pattern with a big curved patch stitched on the front as a pocket to accumulate the debris I collect
