The other day I was in one of my favorite stores and I came across this hand towel. Something about the colors and design made me have to buy it. I know silly. But I was thinking...use for fabric for a dress for Violet, or a skirt for Violet...and then I thought, wait a minute...something for me!
And, so, since I never did get around to making myself an apron, and Violet and Henry already have adorable aprons....
(Both of these were given to Violet as gifts. Neither were made by me. One was made by a good friend (thanks Kristin!) and the other a local shop. Henry took ownership of the blue and red one and now it is his. They love wearing their aprons!)
I used some Woodland Gray Dots and Vines for the top part of the apron, cut a little U out of two pieces, sewed their right sides together, turned it right side out and added a bit of bias tape to the U for the neck tie, attached it to the towel and added thick ribbon for the back tie.
Now I have a cute little apron to wear for making breakfast
or cookies or whatever...speaking of which...I've been promising to make cookies with Violet and Henry, guess we all have a reason to don our aprons now, huh!
