Aprons

Now February is over and done with I can show some of the things that I made for presents for the girls' school friends. For the three little ones (now aged 8) I made an apron each. I made the main body made from a recycled curtain and trimmed with a lovely pale blue/red print that I've been hoarding for a long time. Littleski wrote 'chef whatever-her-name-is' below the pocket and I embroidered it and added a few random hearts poking out of the pocket, just because I don't know when to put the needle down and step away.


I haven't got a decent photo to post of the other apron, stroppy model and a bit out of focus - but you get the idea...

I made a bag for each of them as well and slipped in a cookbook for two of them, and a childrens craft/sewing book with a few supplies for the other.

And a matching birthday card as well!

Such wonderful handmade goodness.I like the fabric choice. Sometimes you just have to sit on a stash of fabric until the perfect opportunity presents itself.right?
