So today I dug out some girlie fabrics to make her an apron, as we are giving her a little cooking set. She loves to help Mum. I used the pattern for the reversible apron from here. But I substituted the straps from here. Hopefully having the elasticated over the head strap will mean she can put it on herself, and the velcro on the waist strap will be easier and quicker to attach rather than tying the straps at the back.
At our Machine Embroidery club this month we made tee pee bags. They were so quick to make - even the zip was sewn in as part of the process in the hoop. These will make great little gifts for the Early Bird Christmas Crafting over at Judith's blog
We had a choice of quilted styles for the bottom of the bag, and quilted, embroidered, appliqued or embellished tops (or all 4 together if we wanted to.) This design is from here. I am going to make some more of these for Christmas gifts.
