Apron for Abigail

I like to sew something each year for the kids' birthdays, and this year, a couple of weeks before her birthday, Abigail asked for a new apron. A perfect choice, since it's a quick project, and it also worked nicely into our unofficial gift theme this year, as we gave her a duster and a just-her-size real broom, and her great-grandparents gave her a play-vacuum (yes, I realize it sounds like we gave her rather self-serving gifts, but really, she loves to be a little mama and help me with my chores!!!). Here's Abigail modeling the finished product... I used a great pattern. I made a couple of minor modifications, such as adding some length. It was easy to sew and has a couple of great design features; namely, an elasticized neck strap and a waist strap that wraps around and fastens on one side with velcro, so it's easy for her to put on/take off the apron by herself.

We did something similar for Hannah's Christmas present. But it was a cooking theme. I found pink measuring cups and spoons and a pink spatula from the breast cancer awareness line at Walmart and bought her a children's cook book from the Gold Medal Flour company...and yes an apron, too! It was one of her favorite gifts because she loves to help me in the kitchen!
