I also had a blast this past week making these super-easy child's aprons. I found this pattern at the Sew Liberated blog.
I wanted to make one for my youngest daughter's best friend. It was her 4th birthday and I thought she needed an apron to go with her new kitchen. She also got matching hot pads! It was funny to see her expression when she opened her gift. Kind of, "Huh?" But, after all the other little party-goer's left and she and my daughter were alone to play, she put on her new spiffy apron and they got busy as four year old's do!
Having put that one together so easily, I dug through my stash and found the perfect material for my daughter's apron! I love it when that happens. You know, when you just have to have the fabric but you're not sure what you'll do with it? (Hint - always get at LEAST one yard!) Perfect!
It is a little hard to see because it is on top of the colorful cherries and flowers dress. I added two ric-rac pockets to the front. Just fun!
I had left over material from the first dress and already had the fabric cut and ready for yet another apron. A friend was visiting for lunch and asked me how much I would charge for one. Well! I told her to just sit down and visit for a little bit and while we chatted away, I made a third apron! She needed it for a 4 year old's birthday party. So, now she owes me lunch!
I've been diving into the world of Photoshop CS4 in class and hope to be shooting more pictures soon and playing with them on the computer. Now I just need more time! Ha! Who doesn't, right?
