Wee Little Apron

I've been thinking lately how great it would be if I had some little aprons that I could put on my princess to protect her clothes a bit more now that she is exploring the world on all fours and getting absolutely filthy. So today after work I decided to design my own pattern... I know, I was a bit scared at first too but it was so easy!!!I made it out of the brown/chocolate corduroy that I had left over from the overalls that I made yesterday. I put pink binding around the edges and then decided that it needed embellishing so I added a felt flower applique to the bottom right.

I made it adjustable at the back so that she doesn't grow out of it too quick as she does everything else from the store. Isn't it just sweet how it tappers up at the back? I just love it!!
On another note.... Everyone should really go check out Ric-Rac's blog!! She has made these really funky bangles out of old plastic knitting needles. I'm desperate to give it a go but have to few plastic needles to waste any. I think that I might have to take her advice and check out the local Op Shop for some bargains...

I hope everybody had a fantastic day. Until next time :0)
