My friend, Laura Bray, sent me this cute Boho Snails Printable to play with and see what I could come up with. I decided to add him to an up-cycled denim garden apron that I had been working on and I think it turned out really cute!
I started by sewing a couple of pieces of a pair of jeans together and adding a pocket made from one of the legs.
Then I added a ruffle I took off of a dress that no longer fit, and added some cute micro ball fringe trim.
I used Aleene's Fabric Fusion Tape to add some cute fabric flowers. The tape is so easy to work with and you can wash and dry the apron on delicate and the flowers will stay on.
Of course I had to add some bling from The Buckle Boutique! This slide was so easy to add to the piece of zipper I saved from the jeans. I just slid it on and stiched it into place.
I used some yellow Kunin Felt to make a couple cute butterfly appliques. I used my Sizzix machine to cut out the butterflies and attached them with Aleene's Fabric fusion Peel and Stick Sheets to my apron.
The felt held up great when cutting the intricate die cut and the bright color really stands out on the denim.
My favorite part of the project was decorating Mr. Boho Snail with buttons from Buttons Galore. I must admit, I went a little over the top. I think I might have a button addiction.
Now I think I'm ready to start working on decorating my patio at our new house!
