Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Did you hear that? It is a big sigh of relief because I finally got to work on a new project! And boy, does it feels good.
Because I have spent the last several weeks preparing for the Maple Leaf Festival (read about it here), I haven't had the opportunity to work on any new projects....that is, until this past week! One of my long time friends asked me to create 3 apron/crayon roll combos for holiday gifts for 3 special kiddos in her life, which I was happy to do of course!
And here they are!
Dinosaurs with Navy 3-pocket front
Brown Butterflies with Pink 3 pocket front
Purple Butterflies with Lilac 3 pocket front
This was my first experience working with velcro and it was so easy! I made both the neck and waist strap with velcro so little ones could take them on and off pretty easily on their own...nothing like fostering independance and teaching them to help themselves! :) I also made each apron out of 2 pieces of soft cozy flannel, which I prefer because it is thicker than normal cotton and it holds the shape of the apron a little better. I also topstiched each apron to complete the look. The crayon rolls I made to coordinate with each of the flannel prints.
Have you been working on any new fun sewing projects lately? I have a new holiday project I am working on this week that I will share soon.....think cute little ones in holiday tees and ties.....
