An apron and a found project

Back when I did the Spice Up The Kitchen Swap my sweet bloggy friend Susanne made my daughter an apron. She LOVES this apron and wears it every time we cook together. Lately she has hit a growth spurt and it's getting too small for her. I decided it was time to make her another one.

I found this easy tutorial on Michael Miller Fabrics and decided to pull out some of the kitchen type fabrics I have to make this. (And really, I have no idea why I have so many food fabrics!). This tutorial was easy to follow and can be modified for adult or kids aprons.


The tutorial calls for a yard of fabric for each front and back. I had that for the front, but pieced together a half yard for the back. (seriously - what was I going to do with this grocery print?)




She is thrilled with it, but of course would not model it for me. It was nice to do a fun little quickie project like this.

And while I was searching my stuff for the D-rings to make this. I came across this bin...


Yup, that is a bag pattern and all the supplies to make it. Included unopened fabric from Fat Quarter Shop. Whoops! Please tell me I'm not the only one who has totally forgotten a project! This one is back up on the top of the list.

Very cute and I'm downloading the tutorial! And, she will model it when she gets bigger - LOLOL! I find projects I've forgotten about all the time, you are in good company!

Your daughter is going to love you forever -- such a cute apron! I am sure I have projects ready to go in my workroom (blush!) and more UFOs than I would ever admit to.

Cute apron, but yeah, not sure what you were going to do with that green fabric! Works well on an apron though...

As for the project, I'm not organised enough to forget like this ;o)
