Gonna Strip!

Sew strips that is...
I found a new fabric store while the kids were at dance last week...
Probably not a good thing.
This store has ONLY beautiful, adorable, marvelous fabric.  They are tiny and know how to sew (unlike the chain stores I usually shop at.)  They smock and have the most adorable baby girl dresses you've ever seen.  Too bad my baby girl is a teenager!
I found it AFTER I'd made Jac's nap-mat (which did end up very cute) but they had some even cooler material I could have used. (The one with the forest animals was too cute!)
This is what I ended up with:
Cool pattern by Fig Tree Threads!
1933 Vintage Material- Chloe's Closet by Moda


The material will make 5 aprons, so I'll have enough for gifts.  
I'm scared to start because I've never used a rotary cutter and was informed that 
I was living in the dark ages.  Wish me luck!

Jerusalem- you would LOVE it. I don't think they have anything ugly in there. I am TRYING to stay away until I get the aprons made...
