I had exactly too much fun this past weekend, so much fun that I seem to have left my camera in a different city. At least I know what city it’s in…. it just doesn’t happen to be the city that I’m in, making blogging about muffins and such difficult.
Time for a distraction!
Hey… look over here! It’s fabric! Why? What’s this all about?
Mom and I had a little downtown Los Angeles fabric shopping adventure last weekend. We braved walls and walls, stores after store of fabric… for you. It’s blinding friends, absolutely blinding. The only thing that cures fabric blindness…
…is a street side hot dog from this lady. No, it doesn’t have to be pretty to be delicious.
Why do Mom and I need so much fabric? We’re making aprons. For you! Mom is doing most all of the sewing. I handle most of the standing around and supporting. We’re going to throw together an Etsy type situation and get you all fitted up right for your kitchen adventures with a pretty hand-made apron from Joy the Baker. Rad? Rad.
Stay tuned for more apron news.
And that picnic? You better believe that’s still in the works! More on that later!
I feel so good seeing people so very enthusiastic to sew aprons. I love aprons and prefer people should collect the best one to make everything delighted. I appreciate your post! Wish you all the very best.
I just want you to know, from firsthand experience, that one is never CURED from fabric-blindness.
I can’t wait! I’m looking for a cool apron to wear during my kitchen adventures!

LOL! I was just there yesterday buying up adorable fabrics to make things for my infant girl. My husband ate those same hot dogs too! I had a bite of the guacamole dog and it was DEE-LICIOUS! I’m so inspired by my new fabrics…can’t wait to start sewing!
Seriously? I love aprons, and really need a new one!! have material and a pattern even…just not the time to make any, lol!! Can’t wait for apron updates. I just recently found your blog, and I love it!!
OK, I finally got done with reading through your archives, I am in love with you :D

My sister-in-laws birthday is this weekend and tomorrow morning I’m making the Southern Style Strawberry Cake. i am so excited I don’t know if I will fall asleep haha…
Honestly, I want my own pot with tomatoes, and I wish I could be there for the picnic…never say never, but with a 6 month baby, I’m not sure I could pull that one off from Salt Lake City (but I’m almost international, I moved here from Croatia 5 years ago)…
Cross everything that the cake turns out…I’ve been known to mess up quite a few!
i will cut off my left arm for an apron
Downtown LA is totally the place to get fabric! I shopped for the fabric for my bridesmaids’ dresses (& even my traditional Chinese dress) there! A bit overwhelming but there are oh-so-many choices. Can’t wait to see how your aprons turn out! I’ve seen some really adorable retro aprons lately…
That is awesome!!! I do not have an apron!!! But I need one VERY badly (my husband can tell you this!!!). I have ruined SO many shirts!!! So this is VERY exciting!
Isn’t apron-making the bestest? And isn’t the LA fashion district a dream-come-true? Love it! And can’t wait for some details about that picnic!
PERFECT! I am totally in need of a rad apron.
