Da bears

I *love* doing custom work. Don't get me wrong, I love letting my own whims guide me, but I love taking a few pieces and ideas from a client and running with it. My friend's mother asked me to make an apron out of a vintage bed sheet and two embroidered pillowcases. I'm not used to using that many pieces in one apron so it took some strategizing (spell check says that's not a word) planning. The fabric was the perfect base and made the rest of the project just fall into place. I fell in love with a finished product, and I wasn't the only one...I posted it as a custom listing on Etsy and had 16 likes overnight! Woo!
