day to be a cook!

My friend asked if I could make an apron for her little 4 year-old girl. Oh, melt me! As I jumped over the moon and landed smack right from where I launched, my reply was an excited "yes!" I don't get to sew very often for a little girl, so naturally, I became obsessed with my mission. The only requirement from my little chef's mother was that it involve pink gingham. OK, for certain I am going to require an intervention by the time this is over. I set out to find a pattern and then, joy of joys, shop for the fabric. The gingham? No problem. But what to put with it, what is going to look good with that joyful pink confection? I happened to be at Joann's and as I perused my fabric options, my eyes fell upon some Alexander Henry fabric...the famous fruit pattern. Perfect! What are the odds of Joann's carrying Alexander Henry fabric? I took it as a good omen and the pinks matched up perfectly! A little cutting, a little gathering, sewing and monogramming her sweet initials and it's complete! And adjustable. My little friend can put the apron on and off all by herself! How creative is that? You can find the pattern here. Free. Easy. Sweet. But I'm thinking that maybe, my little friend-chef might need another accessory. Hmmmmm....
