Ode to the Simpsons

Anyone who knows me, knows that I love the Simpsons- Ok I love the show as a whole, but I mostly discount the weak episodes of the past ten years.
Nevertheless, I was more than thrilled when I came across Simpsons fabric. I probably had the fabric for more than a year until I figured out a good use for it.

I made these envelope style pillow covers that button in the back- so I can take them off and wash them.

Here's an close-up view of the fabric. There are some problems with the fabric- Krusty's face is green, one of Sideshow Mel's eyes is yellow, and several characters have the wrong color hair, and while there are a lot of cool esoteric characters Groundskeeper Willy seems to be missing! But still- cool Simpsons fabric.

I also made this fun apron for myself. (and I still have more fabric!)

It keeps me cheerful when I am being domestic- and I really did need an apron, I'm messy.

And just you wait- there are plenty of other apron projects in the pipeline.
