I had intended to make one of these aprons to submit to SU for the Artisan Awards contest. I also ordered ribbon, buttons, a scrapbook kit and more just for this contest, and guess what.....yep, I never did one darn thing!!! That seems to be my life story lately.....nothing completed! The apron I was going to make (and still will as I have all the parts) was to be much fancier then this one, I wear this one to my workshops, and it was my first "attempt" ! I used regular inks to stamp on it, and Staz On, for the one I was going to submit I had purchased all the craft inks in the bold colors...I will have that one on later! Maybe I can submit next year!!!
