New year, new apron!

Yes, its another apron. A VERY girly apron. A dear friend of mine's daughter is having a birthday party next month and the theme is baking. Apparently she has really taken a liking to baking cupcakes and the like. You GO  girl! 7 years old and baking like a pro!

So, for her birthday I picked up some neat cupcake kits and sprinkles and batter spoons and the like...but of course, you know my unhealthy obsession with aprons well enough by now to know I was not going to let an opportunity like this pass my by.

Once again, I dug out all of my remnants from the last couple of years and found this ADORABLE girly fabric that was too girly for myself but perfect for a little girl turning 8.

It felt SO GOOD to be sewing again. This apron exceeded my expectations after yesterday's sewing debacle. The apron went off without a hitch. I didn't even pull out my seam ripper. Can you believe it?
Also, I must be learning something because I managed to put the pleat/ruffles on BEFORE the backing and it turned out correctly! What!??! Awesome!
I feel totally happy after making this apron. Can't wait to give it to the little girl it was made for! Hope you all are having a great weekend! Its sunny and warm here in TN. Such a change from last week! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

  1. Beautiful! I just made my first ever apron the other day. So fun! It's not nearly as cute as this one, though. I love it, and I'm sure the birthday girl will, too!
