Guess what this month’s virtue is at Rush Hour? Responsibility: showing you can be trusted with what is expected of you. Guess who blew that one last week… you got it, ME! I can’t even hide behind my co-host character “V” this time, this one was aaaallll on me.
Darlene (who plays Mrs. F) asked me FOREVER ago to add some pockets to her costume’s apron. Pockets are important for Mrs. F. and Darlene has sweetly been waiting FOREVER. Did I mention it was a long time she’s been waiting? Well it’s true.
I was caught up in my own mess over my character “V” being scripted to be mean to everyone in the world last week, and completely forgot Darlene had asked me to give her some pockets. I felt really bad about that, but I am the QUEEN OF MAKING UP FOR MY MISTAKES!!! (it’s true, but don’t be jealous, it takes alot of screwing up to get this good at fixing things.)
… and THIS had gone on long enough!
So, I did not make pockets for Mr’s F’s old apron. Oh NO! I made her a set of aprons (ALL WITH POCKETS) so she will have an apron for every season. OK, maybe not EVERY season, but a bunch of seasons. (pictures below)
The pattern was easy, Simplicity 5154, and the fabric required was only 1 yard per apron. I made five of them. Normally, I would pick up fabric at Wally World, but these were a special make-things-right gift, so I went to Michael’s craft store and upgraded the quality somewhat.
We got’cher autumn corn, yer pink spring polka dots, yer green ‘n red Christmas polka dots, yer old glory for His glory, and some colorful puzzle pieces (see below for more about the puzzle fabric).
I’ll still add pockets to the first “classic” Mrs. F’s apron, but for now, Darlene should be set with these, doncha think?
