Aprons for Little Chefs

One of the gifts we gave Nia for Christmas was a Princess Cookbook, full of kid-friendly recipes complete with pink frosting and lots of sprinkles. I was excited about the book, but even more excited about my idea to sew an apron for her too.

I had a plan in my head, and with Alva's expertise we figured out how to pull it all together. And I was pretty happy with the end result!

Here it is - a multi-patterned child's apron with ribbon straps and ladybug accents:

You are a great seamstress! This apron is something I can see Nia sharing with her little girl when that time comes. It will always be cherished. (Just like the special blanket you made for Nate that Nia stole!)
