A Sweet Apple Apron

I made this custom apple apron this week that was a gift for a little girl who was turning 3.  It was so fun to do.  I've never made an apron before.  I mostly followed this pattern.  The one thing I did different was I drew my own pattern for the apron body.  I used one of my daughter's aprons as a loose template because I wanted it to be a little more girly and have a bit more style.  I even bribed my daughter with cookies to take some photos wearing the apron - my favorite mothering technique ;) 

She couldn't keep her hands out of the pocket.  So cute!

And here's a silly shot...

Of course now she wants an apron of her own. She already has three, but she wants me to make one for her.  I love that she is still at an age where she likes me to make her things, so I may oblige especially since mommy wants an apron too!

In other news, we are moving in a few days. Yikes!  Thankfully it's not far at all, but we are knee deep in boxes none-the-less!  I am not a serial mover, this will be my third move ever!  It also means that my trusty sewing machine is put away again.  I can't remember the last time I used it as little as I have this month. That can only mean one thing: I have some sewing time to make up for after next week! And, believe me, I'm looking forward to it.  Especially since I will be getting a little sewing room in the new house!  Yay!  I can't wait!
