I signed up to be part of the Crafterbowl Competition@ Pinkapotamus. I was assigned a V-day project made with the secret ingredient of tulle.
In a perfect world, this is what I'd look like each day, as my family returns home. I wouldn't own things like "good sweat pants" and I wouldn't have ruined all my make-up brushes on a stenciling project. There would always be fresh baked cookies cooling on the counter and a well-balance meal cooking in the oven.
This ombre tulle apron with a sweetheart neckline turned out really fun. Wearing it makes me want to bake dozens of light and fluffy cupcakes.

Step 1: Cut a rectangle 22x18.
Step 2: Cut strips of tulle 10 inches wide. Fold them in half and run a gathering stitch along the edge. Gather to 18 inches.
Step 3: Fold top edge over 1/4 inch. Press.
Step 4: Fold down 2 inches. Press.
Step 4: Pin top ruffle to apron. Fold fabric over ruffles and top stitch.
Step 5: To make the top of the apron, fold 2 (15X 12.5) pieces of fabric in half. Trace a large circle on top of fabric and cut out to make heart shape.
Step 6: With right sides together, sew apron tops together.
Step 7: Clip along the curves all the way to stitching line. Turn. Press. Top-stitch.
Step8: Sew top to bottom along waist. Attach ribbons at top at waist to tie. Try it on and admire yourself in the mirror.
My daughter, Mom and Aunt Barb thought it was "adorable". However, my 11-year-old son went into shock for seeing me in something besides brown or black and fell off the couch laughing.
