    Default Sewing project anyone?

    I found directions for an apron to wear while bathing. And I found sources for material. But, I don't sew.

    Do any of you have the time and desire to try this? I really want a pretty apron. I'm tired of the ugly blue or black ones.

    Here are the directions:

    And if you google "oilcloth" you will find companies who sell it. They all seem to have the same patterns. I like the poppy on yellow. You may also be able to get oilcloth in a sewing store. I don't know because I never go in them.

    Thanks

    If I can find some oilcloth to do a practice run on, I can make it happen. I'm not making any promises until I test a piece it on my machine, lest I end up with the nightmare that was sewing a sequined running skirt for my sister!

    Thumbs up

    Hope it works! I realized after posting my request that it's a busy time for groomers. I have the same dogs pretty much every month so I didn't think about that.

    At the shows they always seem to have a vendor that sells them for $15 they have cute ones. I have a purple one with white dots and it has ruffle edges. I was considering making and selling cute ones and I still may but its hard to compete with $15dollar ones.

    Yep but not waterproof ones. I make them out of hair resistant materials to wear over my regular street clothes I tend to wear to work in
