Make Apron from Old Jeans


Another day, another apron.

The day after I gave the messenger bag to Little One’s teacher, her teaching assistant told me how much he liked it. He’s the sort of guy who’s always very helpful and, incidentally, the only male teaching assistant in school. I have to say that I’m glad Little One has both male and female influences in the classroom. He likes to say that his teacher is his school mummy, and the teaching assistant his school daddy.

Hope it’ll come in handy for those summer barbecues.

Speaking of summer, we’re now holidaying in Greece. But I’ll let you in on a little secret. I brought along my sewing machine! No promises but … if I manage to sneak in some sewing, I’ll definitely share them here. Goes without saying, that’d make me …
