pinny power!

Son number 3 has a birthday party to attend today - a little girl whose mum I know from booby group - so I decided to be creative!
I am very creative and talented....in my head!!! Sadly something goes amiss between head and fingers!
First I made her a card...

Now I think this is actually only the 3rd card I have ever made...(I have a few supplies snaffled from my mum) and to be honest I'm not sure cardmaking is my thing....but it looks pretty enough and has encouraged me to perhaps make more if the need arises!



So then I thought, pressie!! I thought every little girl needs a pinny for baking...

And if it has your initial on...even better....

I used a pinny my mum had made one of my bigger boys (now handed down to a younger brother) as a template, and although I have not got my mums sewing skills, I'm quite pleased with it. It was a move out of my comfort zone, I was going to make it easy for myself but then thought no, do it properly..so I made it with a lining at the top of the pinny...I could be super critical...its far from perfect...the lining is not quite long enough - some of the stitching is..erm..rough!! And the tailors chalk I drew the initial on the fabric with shows through, but on the whole I'm chuffed...

Now I know what little girls will be getting for their birthdays!!

Gosh, you are clever. I want to make an adult's apron next, so that's inspired me to get on with it.

Did the little girl like them? She should do, they are both gorgeous. If my little girl was still little she would have love them both. Well done.
