Thank Heaven For Little Girls

Last week I shared with you the great little child size aprons I got at Hobby Lobby.

After washing and ironing them, I set to embellishing them to give them some personality.  The white ruffle hemmed apron I made up for my granddaughter.

While the other two were plain natural canvas aprons, I gave them little girl makeovers, too.  One also got an Alice in Wonderland tea party transfer framed out in a pretty cream trim and with a bit of bling and crinkled seam binding at the top.

The second is just perfect for the little Princess in Training with some ruffle ribbon at the top and a bit of bling above the crown with a vintage button.

The two natural canvas ones are currently for sale in my Etsy shop.  Perfect for your own granddaughter, daughter, niece, or even a dress form!

Hi again. Thanks for the comment about my grandaughter. She is such a great little girl. The funnest thing. Everyone that meets her says the same thing...about her being funny.
Can you post pitures of yours? I'd love to see her.

Kathy, these are adorable! You did a great job on them. Perfect for a precious little sweetie!

Kelly said...

You did such a good job on those. I've always liked seeing the little junior sized aprons for kids to help out in the kitchen or do crafts in. Yours are almost too pretty to use!

Hi Kathy,

First...I love your new profile pic!
Second, I just read the post above and if I weren't so tired right now (been gone all day and stayed up until 2:00 a.m.) I'd head right back out...I may have an energy boost in a couple hours and go get some paint. Thanks for sharing!
Third, these are just too adorable! What a great idea for personalizing and stylizing a plain ole' apron! I just love what you did. I'm going to go check them out at your shop now.

Have a wonderful weekend,

Nancy
