Just so you know that I have actually created something recently, here is what I made for two of my granddaughters while they were visiting. The intention was to make an apron for the granddaughter away at college who is becoming quite domestic. Yeah, I heard she made cup cakes! So my daughter and I went to Jo-Ann's and bought a pattern. She wanted something retro, and there are some cute patterns around. We decided on this cutie!
When Mary, on the left in the photo, saw the pattern, she wanted an apron too. So we went through my fabric and found fabric that she liked. As I was stitching away, Danielle, on the right, comes in and says she wants one too! So we went through my fabric and found something that she liked as well. As I was stitching away, Plumpkin came in and she wanted an apron too! We can't leave her out!

This is Plumpkin thinking, "Hmmm, I think I want an apron too"!

Well, I didn't get Plumpkin's done yet, and I actually need to make our college girl's apron first. So that is next on the agenda. So, as you can see, I have two more apron's to make before I can begin thinking QUILT again. But I am smiling! It is always nice when you can actually make something that makes kids happy these days!

Wow Marcie, those aprons are awfully cute. I've always wanted to make one for myself, but I'm scared to sew anything that isn't a quilt!! I've got the pattern and the fabric already - how silly am I??

Those aprons are so cute, I love the pattern!

Cute aprons and even cuter girls!! I still have a couple of aprons that belonged to mom. I think there was a time when people got out of the habit of wearing aprons, but they're so handy! Pockets and everything! Very cute!

Karen said...

Uh oh, add another apron for Polly to the list! Will you look at that Plumpkin and her beautiful eyes! All those granddaughters, Marcie, you are very blessed.

Looks like you have 2 very happy customers there! I always wear an apron in the kitchen - I am happy to see that they are making a comeback in our culture.

Karen said...

Aprons have made a big comeback. Used to be that no homemaker was without a few. I like your comment about you'd rather make an apron than cook in one. How true for me!

Those aprons are adorable. Can see why they were so popular with your girls.
