Aprons for Lily
I finished up these birthday aprons at the end of last week, but wanted to wait until after they were gifted to share them! I made them for my friend's daughter Lily for her second birthday.
This is the play apron that I posted about last week, made from vintage Simplicity 8615 pattern. It was fast and easy to stitch up, and is very cute - I'd like to make some for my little girl!
This is a tea apron that I cut without a pattern from thrifted embroidered fabric, and I love the way it turned out.
And lastly, this is a toddler sized Cobbler apron with three big pockets in front, view A from Simplicity 3802. Lily can wear this when she's coloring and stick her extra crayons in the pockets.
I'm planning to stitch up another childs' apron for my next sewing project, a vintage pattern that I've had for years. It is hand cut from a Chicago newspaper dated Wednesday, March 8 1945 and is the simple style that crosses in the back, buttoning over the shoulders. (Not a great photo, but you get the idea).
I saw a childs' apron that looked just like this pattern at the Apron History lecture I attended last week, and it was absolutely adorable, I can't wait to see how this apron turns out. In fact, as soon as I press the "Publish" button, I'm off to get started! Happy sewing!
