Gifty Sewing

This project was done about a month ago, but I hadn't got to blogging it.

I can get my fix of little girl sewing with the daughter of a friend from work.
A few years ago I made her a couple of sundresses 1st one and 2 more, but seems to me we didn't have much of a summer that year and I'm pretty sure she didn't get a whole lotta use out of them.

This year she turned 7 and they were planning a cupcake party. During a weekend in Toronto, our friends took us to Lens Mills and I found this...


Couldn't pass it up, bought a meter, didn't know what to do with it, DH suggested an apron. J and her mommy cook together so it was a good idea. I found an online tutorial for both the apron and a chef's hat and it turned out pretty well.


The apron is reversible.


Her mom invited me to help out at the party. Actually, she just invited me to attend but with 7 little girls in attendance, it took both of us to keep up with them LOL
Here are pics - full permission to use them.


It's a shame she's so camera shy LOL

  6. That's a very cute apron, and the chef's hat is terrific! The birthday girl looks just delighted. You're right; it's too bad she's so bashful.

  7. Hi Claire. Thank you for asking. The tornado hit just across the lake from us. My sister lives on that side . She's Ok but knows of people whose garage fell over. Someone else experienced some damage to their home . it doesn't sound like many people were affected. it was very surprising to wake up to the news. We didn't know anything about until a relative from London Ontario called us to see if we were OK. Nice to hear from you!
