My daughter was recently invited to one of her little friend's 5th birthday party. I had plans to run out and buy something cute to give to Allie, but my daughter had other plans.
"Mom? Can you make something for Allie?"
"Like what, Afton?"
"Can we sew something?" (I like how she said "we." Little lady can't sew yet - what she really meant was, "Can I pick out the pretty stuff and you put it together?")
So we searched through my recently reorganized stash and came up with these materials. Not a bad mix, eh?
After cutting out the ONE pattern piece, I added some red ric rac trim near the bottom edge.
On went some more ric rac around our pre-cut gingham heart. It's a nice edging between the 2 fabric patterns.
Next step: Binding trim around the whole thing.
Here's where we used the polka-dot ribbon - one tie on each side and 2 at the top.
Allie is now the proud owner of a Bronwyn & Afton Original Apron!
Isn't it darling??
Now Allie can bake up a storm with Mommy- and feel pretty doing it.
When we wrapped the apron we added a box of cake mix, sprinkles and some pretty cupcake liners. Afton said Allie was ecstatic at receiving this baking-themed gift. I'll have to keep this gift idea in mind for other little girls in our life.
Thanks for popping by!
