Well, this little diddy was my first experience with binding.

It was a bit tedious but not difficult. I was just happy to get the darn buttons sewn on.

Several nights I went to bed thinking, “Wait, okay, yes, I did see the buttons today, not in someone’s mouth.”

Here is the link to the tutorial.

I just like that she has found a way to use the word “blatherings”.

Blatherings, blatherings, blatherings, my new favorite word.

And of course, after the photos were taken the apron came off and hasn’t been invited on again. I’m blathering…on to the photos of how mine turned out.
