How are you? Thanks for coming by!
My post title is a little misleading... we are neither crusty or crabby today. Well, actually, we're sick so maybe we're crusty, but I don't feel crabby at all!
No-no, the Krusty and Krabby that I'm referring to is all about Krusty Krab from Sponge Bob.
A friend of mine asked if I could make a Krusty Krab Apron for his friend, who's daughter was having a Sponge Bob birthday party. Of course I said "Sure!", expecting it to take a few hours because I'm such a master sewer. A master sewer with no training. A master sewer will little mastery. A master sewer who forgot to take actual photos of my project. Ugh. Hello iPhone photos...
My original plan was to make an apron where the body of Krusty Krab was the main part of the apron and the eyes were the bib of the apron. Due to Krusty's large eyes, this didn't actually turn out, so I had to sew it onto a pre-made apron due to time and
But wait, I should go back to the beginning. I had no idea who Krusty Krab was, so I had to find his image (thank you google!) and then I had to figure out how to turn his image into a apron... Hello projector!
Oh, you're Krusty Krab? Okay, got it!
I then traced Krusty with a black marker, knowing that I was going to cut each piece of Krusty and piece the apron body together.
Oh, and I drew his nose and smile on with a fabric marker. After working on this "it'll take me a few hours, no biggie" project for 2 days, ALL day, a fabric marker was all I could muster. Some projects just end up like that... due to my- ahem- sewing mastery.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
