Pleased as punch

I just finished my first two 'real' sewing projects. I've been forever intimidated by my sewing machine and hauled it out only to do simple pillows or other low-risk, straight-stitch projects.

But when I saw this pattern and read through it I thought it would be a perfect project to enhance my skills. Plus our friends' 3-year-old son, A., loves to help his mom in the kitchen and could use a little apron.

I couldn't decide between fabrics, so I made two and figure whichever one A. doesn't want, Big I can use. They aren't perfect, but they're pretty darn good for a beginner if I do say so myself.

He just woke up from his nap in that picture, that's why he looks so grumpy. He does have some more growing to do before it fits.

I even added a pocket to the second one.


  1. Those are cute!!!! Do you make adult ones? I'm still wearing one I got as a gift when we lived in Florida!! I'm asking for an apron here. Anytime is fine.... I'll pay for it even... Can I have the little model that comes with it?? I have cousins here that will play with him...

  2. Those are really neat! Good job! And great pick of material.

  3. Thank you. That's what I was thinking of making for you-know-who. If you think it will suit that person.

  4. it will definitely suit that person!
