The happiest place on earth

Thanks for the kind wishes for our trip! We went to the "happiest place on earth" where after one fun filled day, the little one succombed to a high fever and nausea. New toys from the nearby Target and cable TV (where we inexplicably became addicted to the women's collegiate softball playoffs) made the days spent in a hotel room bearable. On our last day we managed to be at the park all together for 3 hours before the older one was infected too. When those ever-attentive Disney associates noticed her slumped against a wall, they offered their nursing services. Did you know Disneyland has on-call nurses? It makes sense now that I think about it.

A wee bit of crafting...a cute 2 pocket apron for a craft fair seller. The fabric was bold and bright. Having a set geometric pattern is easier to cut (between the 8th and 9th circles) but trickier to sew (everyone and their mother can tell if it's crooked). I'm wondering if the velcro closures were a good idea...would they scratch everytime change is given? Anyways, I placed the hooks on the outer edge for less contact.

So sorry to hear about the kids being sick on your trip!
The apron is very trendy-looking!

Hopefully the kids won't remember the illness - just the fun.

The apron doesn't look crooked to me. You did a nice job. I think you had to put the velcro in - I can't think of something that would work better, and it needs to close, or the $ might fall out, right?

I'm sorry to hear they were sick. Oh that happens to us every time we just think about going on vacation.
That apron is great and I know what you mean about having a geometric pattern to go by-it makes it so much easier to sew. I love the fabric colors.

My Son gets a terrible chest cold and fever every time we travel. I feel your pain. Good thing you were able to keep yourself entertained!

I'm so sorry to hear your trp was blighted by illness.

I really like that apron, it's bright but not in a gaudy way. Very nice.
