Polka Dot Fun

My friend Nancy owns Friendship Farm, has a restaurant in Shipshewana, and has just opened a bakery, "The Bake Shop".  She asked me if I'd make some aprons for the new bakery.

The theme of the bakery is polka dots and I had alot of fun shopping for fabric with her and finding some on my own.  There is endless options out there for polka dot fabrics.

I don't know what it is about polka dots, but they make me smile and I feel happy when I'm sewing with them.

I can only hope that her employees feel just as happy wearing them as I did making them!

Have a polka-dotty day!
