Meet Penelope

So I had my first Etsy purchase yesterday! Yea! It's nice to get one under your belt. Granted I do this every couple of weeks at my "markets", but this is my first "cyber sale".

I have been having a blast shopping for "new inspiration". I never realized how many fabulous colors and patterns sheets can come in. My personal sheets are a boring (but very comfy and organic) white. Take a look at the vintage sheet it took to make "Penelope" (see pic above).

SIDE NOTE: in an effort to cut back on confusion, I've decided to name all my aprons. It's also a great opportunity to look at the Baby Name Book again, knowing I will not be naming any more children.

This vintage sheet is loads of fun and the colors are indescribable. The combination really makes it pop. You can also meet "Margaret" by clicking on my Etsy shop (in right margin). She was born out of a vintage Ralph Lauren sheet. Five luscious layers of ruffles -- very proper.

And I promise more to come in the next few days. I've been sewing up a storm.

They are beautiful, congrats on the sale. YOur aprons are beautiful. I think that's a fantastic idea for naming your items. I always have a hard time with that.
