For my first post on this blog I'm going to start an actual project. The project is "Barbie through the years, made into aprons".
I am going to make an apron for every year of Barbie, starting with 1959 (which happens to be the year I was born).
So, I'm starting with the first-ever 1959 Barbie. The first Barbie had a black and white striped swimsuit. This suit has become a sort of Barbie icon.
Here is the apron finally!
Barbie was born in March of1959, just like me! The first Barbie wore this black and white striped swimsuit, and had a blonde ponytail. There was a brunette as well.

I found this fabric, I don't know why it's so hard to find 1" wide black and white stripe fabric, but it is.
I also found this super fun fabric. A cute colorful multi dot. I think these will be cute together. Can't wait to get started, I will let you know when it's done.
