LOOK at all these ... I'm sewed out this week!


My neice is having her 4th birthday party in less than a month *cupcake themed* my sister and I made aprons for the guest.

Here are some of the patterns (Lis is in the middle, she got a special fabric w/ pockets on hers too which no other child got) All the other aprons have duplicates.

I think they turned out darling, and what a great "parting" gift!

And let me tell you something, candy these days is soo expensive, and usually we put together senseless candy bags and send them home with the kids, only for their mom's to throw away. This project seems expensive but its not. I raided the $1.50 table at walmart paid 8 bucks got 4 childs apron out of every yard, the ribbon for the ties cost $12 and so that was a grand total of 20 aprons for $20 now tell me could you do that with goody bags?? Yes it takes a little time and effort on your part, but soo well worth it! My child can use it to bake, cook, paint ect ect ... I wont chuck it into the garbage like I would candy!
Can't wait to see what Bran has in store for me next year! LOL

  4. Those are too cute for words! Did you use a certain pattern or did you make your own and wing it?

  6. Just wonderful! I totally agree with you about goody bags- items like these aprons are such a better party favor!

    Oh, and I have seen this done with dollar store kitchen towels, which might add a tad more to the price, but would probably cut down the time factor (and it would still be cheaper than those goody bags!).

  7. The aprons turned out beautifully, and I bet the kids were thrilled to get their own to take home! Love it! We have several for the girls and we use them all the time!!
