Projects: Midsummer and an apron

As you guys probably know, this play is quickly approaching. As in, we open in a WEEK.Working on a show like Midsummer, you see a lot of weird stuff in the costume shop. Such as pairs of legs wearing stretchy pants:
People painting on tables:
Sometimes people (ahem, me) paint with tiny brushes. It took more time than it should have.
But, I think it was worth it. I'll post an actual picture of this costume, Mustardseed, rather than this pinned together one.

Over the Thanksgiving break James and I spent time with our families. We had dinner at his Grandma's house and then we ate dessert at my parent's house with my Dad's side of the family. It was a well deserved break, I think. While we were at my parent's house, I kept a promise I had made earlier to Avery. She spotted Hilary's apron and decided she needed one too. I'm sure she said something like, "I yant un" or something cute. I used leftover fabric from Hilary's hooter-hider and the quilt my Mom made for Avery. It is a reversible apron. Here is the white floral side:
And the pink side, as modeled by Ave.
I can't get over how cute she is! It was so great to be able to spend time with our families, especially Hilary and her family. It will be Christmas before we know it!

Thanks again for the apron! Avery loves it. She wants to wear it everywhere. Christmas will be here so soon-can't wait!

So, did you hand paint the fabric before you turned it into a dress? Holy cow, that is talent, girl!

Also, do you have a pattern for that apron?
