I Feel Like Scarlett O'Hara!

So, I started my cake class last Monday - and I really think I'm going to like it. But one of the several things I need to take to class next Monday is an apron. I didn't have/couldn't find one anywhere, so I decided to be resourceful and make one. Because maldito Wal-Mart has done away with it's previously vast sewing section, and since I hadn't managed to make it to the ONE quilting store in our little downtown by Wednesday evening - the thought came to me to look around in the various rooms of boxes we still haven't gone through yet to see if I could locate any of my old stockpile. I found two big chunks of lovely fabric that I'd totally forgotten about, but neither seemed right for an apron. Then I found an old bed sheet I'd put aside to use in quilting and I instantly saw apron written all over it!

So ala Scarlett O'Hara's re-purposed drapery dress ..... drumroll please ...... I bring you my clever(?) reuse of a twin flat sheet (and I still have a ton left over for quilting - just not the part of the sheet with the border on it ... which I couldn't have used in quilting anyway):

PS - there would have been considerably less swearing if I'd had a pattern, but all things considered I'm quite proud (of both the apron, and myself, lol)
