Sweet Little Aprons

Welcome sweet friends! I am so glad you stopped by! There is spring in the air, a touch of pink...things are blooming....I love it. I have been busy with decorating, painting, organizing...but I managed to fit in....a tiny bit of sewing. I have had aprons on my mind. Little ones.

I found this sweet little pattern at Joann's the other day for making miniature aprons...I have just gotten started...and I am in love!
Decorating today with Kimba @ A soft place to land!
If you follow my blog you will remember last year I made a small dress to hold clothespins....

Since my kitchen is red and white I of course had to make a little red checked apron...I made a few more that I will show next week~

I made my own pattern for this one...the measurements had to be just right!
It had to fit just so....

Ooooops..... what is this?

The backs of the aprons!

So sweet. I used to love making doll clothes but now I'm stuck on making little aprons!
Oh the possibilities, the colors, the rick rack, the trim....And they took such a short time to make...big smile.
thanks so much for coming by!

These are so sweet! I like how you hung them from your washboard. I have one in my laundry room that I may just have to do this too!

I have a mini apron tutorial on my tutorial blog!

Love the aprons. I would love to start sewing again, but I just can't see well enough to even thread the needle! Happy Pink Saturday!

Mary Beth @ Live. Laugh. Make Something said...

absolutely adorable! Thanks for letting us know about that pattern. I have some little aprons that my mama would put around small Coke bottles when she and friends would play cards with her friends back in the 40's. I'm enjoying my first Pink Saturday hopping around to see all the pretties! I invite you over to my place to see my little Basket Full of Sunshine. until later...

Great post. I have some 'classic' clothespins - just a few - just the ones that had neat springs or unusual appearances. That's a neat idea to show them off...I'll have to remember this. Thanks, Jenn <><

I love,love,loooovvveeeeeeee the little aprons. I love any and every apron I've ever seen and yours are adorable. I searched all over for this pattern a few weeks ago,after I had seen it on some blog.. anyway,I finally got my hot little hands on the pattern,and haven't made one yet.
I've made bottle aprons from an old pattern I had,but not one of these little sweeties. These are just sweet enough that you should be able to hear me ooohhh and ahhhhing all the way from Texas. Ok,I admit..you nay be able to hear a few high pitched squeals as well.. these are just too adorable.
Many happy Pinks..have a lovely weekend.
