I have made an apron. I'm really pleased with it. I used my sisters old shirt and a white sheet. I'm hoping she doesn't want them back. I used the rolled hem foot(I'm unsure of the technical name) on the strings, I love it and when I was cooking yesterday I kept wiping my hands on my trousers to keep it clean.
I hope everyone has a great time at the FQR2013 I'm looking forward to reading all about it.
