Welcome to oliver + s Welcome to oliver + s A few months ago I mentioned that we were working on a basic T-shirt pattern, since we’ve never done one and so many of you have asked for it. When the spring patterns came out last month, quite a few of you wondered where it was. Well, as we were working on the kids’ T-shirt we started thinking that it might be nice to have a women’s T-shirt as well. Which made us think that a men’s T-shirt might also be a good idea. And before we knew it we had a whole family of T-shirt patterns: women, men, big kids, and small kids. So here they are: four new digital T-Shirt patterns.
Everyone has a cute apron, right? Well, not my mom, and it was her birthday. I actually didn't even think to make her an apron until I saw this chicken fabric (you know, she has the craziness of chickens) and it screamed "make me into an apron!" - so I did. I have only made half-aprons before (like HERE and HERE) but figured a full apron is just a half apron with a top, right? So this is my first full apron, and I tackled it without a pattern. crafts, sewing, recipes, photo tips, and more!: Full Apron Tutorial crafts, sewing, recipes, photo tips, and more!: Full Apron Tutorial
Here is a great idea to jazz up a plain t-shirt, or perhaps one that you've ripped, or has a bad stain. The tutorial, from Made by Lex , shows you how to cut out your original t-shirt and insert this shirred section. You can insert it at the front or the back and it's size and shape is totally up to you. The inserted panel is from a separate piece of material or old shirt, so you can use a contrasting color, or the same one as in the photo below I think it's a great look and a good way to reinvent an old shirt that you perhaps no longer wear or just want to makeover.

After the two wingchairs I found at the side of the road sale were slip covered in antique ticking I found that I still had tons of fabric left. There were a few areas on the fabric that no matter how hard I tried to remove the rust spots, they never completely faded away. I thought about how I could use these pieces of fabric. An apron seemed like a good choice because in all honesty, I am a bit clumsy when cooking. It never fails that I splatter something on myself when whipping up something in the kitchen. Which is why I always wear an apron. Creating a Cute Apron with Leftover Fabric Creating a Cute Apron with Leftover Fabric
{Hand Towel} Apron I thought with all my home renovations projects (found here and here), you might be ready for something different! I mean, my blog is supposed to be a little of everything :) So, a sewing post is in order. A friend on mine has a very talented mom who made this super cute apron; I knew I wanted to copy it, and put my own spin on it! {Hand Towel} Apron

Retro Ric Rac Apron Retro Ric Rac Apron I have a deep and abiding love for Ric Rac. If you were to peek into my stash, which I do not recommend, you would think I was saving up for a global Ric Rac shortage. Other people, they buy a pack of gum or TicTac’s every time they go to the store. Nope, not me. I’m Ric Rac all the way.
