Kiddo apron

I was missing my sewing machine (was it missing me?) so I went back to it this week with a small project. For a small person. She's having her third birthday this coming weekend.


I spotted a cute kid's baking set the other week locally up on our neighbourhood shopping strip. And I had the idea of whipping up a pretty apron to go with the baking set.


So a length of blue ricrac, little bo peep and some polka dots (love, love, love this fabric!) later, we have a kid's apron. It kinda just fits me......hmmm, not really.

This is the first time I've tried a patched pocket, where I'm actually happy with the results. And instead of shirring, I did some pleats at the waist, just for something different.


I found some spare time today, if you're asking why the mid-week post. This one's for you, Cathy! I'll try to sneak in an extra blog post where I can.

Anyhow, we actually have some sun today! Must go out and enjoy it!

Cheerio!

Your aprons are always so cute! I should know being lucky enough to own one! I am sure that the birthday girl is going to love this! I still use the little rolling pin that my mum gave me as a child when I bake today!!

thanks for the midweek post, Jade, I really appreciate it. The only problem is our internet is down so this is only a very brief visit. So I am really not enjoying my time in blogland as I really should be.

Anyway, your little apron is adorable. Well done - I love that little blue polka dot (which manufacturer is that by) I haven't seen (or noticed) it in that colourway before.

Anyway, thanks again for trying so hard to get an extra post in so I can have some 'midweek' reading.
