A Peachy Pinny - Just what I need

I have a pink and grey checked dress, more of a pinafore than a dress.  Whenever I wear it I always seem to get lots done - so I now call it my "getting things done" dress.  When I need to be organised, when there's lots to be done, I turn to my trusty "getting things done" dress and it works!

Now obviously I can't wear the pinafore every day - what I really need is one of these.

Here's the book its from.

It's by Tif Fussell and Rachelle Blondel and it had lots of lovely ideas in it.

So feeling inspired, as instructed, I grabbed myself an old tea towel and set to work making myself a half pinny.

It's got lovely long ties and a big patch pocket.

A cute little label.

Some assorted buttons.

An appliquéd heart.

Some doilies.

And plenty of space to add more, if the fancy takes me.

So now I can wear my peachy pinny every day and be oh so organised and efficient.  I'm off now to get things done - because there are always things that need doing.
