Tina's NDAD Creation

I have my cooking club coming up in a week (it's Valentine's Day themed and if you have any fun ideas, leave them in the comments below!!)  Tina's piece totally tied in to my recipe gathering.  Check it out!

I was introduced to you site about a year and half ago by my dear friend Kelly. I have been collecting re-makeables ever since, but by far this is my favorite. I found this wonderful mushroom fabric and just had to buy the remaining 2 1/2 yards of it.  I collect mushrooms, so for a total cost of about $4.00, I bought fabric without any idea of what I was going to do with it.

New Dress A Day - DIY - Upcycled Apron

I was getting ready to bake and when I reach for my apron, the light bulb went off! 

What did the light bulb say, Tina??  (Couldn't resist...)

I took my fabric and made a mushroom out of it!  I used a small piece of brown flannel from my stash for the stem, then made a "waist band" and stitched that in place after inserting a red washcloth (which I stole from my linen closet) to be the area used to wipe my hands on.

I am so excited to combine two of my loves; mushrooms and cooking!

And, PS, what an awesome kitchen you have to cook in!!  I dream about the day when I have enough counter space to properly prepare and lay out all my bowls and ingredients, instead of doing things individually based on the amount of room I have.

I just ate a delicious mushroom gnocchi tonight and this apron goes hand in hand.  Love this Tina – you look adorable.  Having a cute apron to wear makes cooking just that much better!!
