In the Craft Room: The Ruffle Apron

Lucy was invited to a birthday party. And I had been at the store and totally forgot to get a present for it. And I’ve been on a saving money kick.

So put the two together and I came up with this lovely little Apron for the present. I call it the Ruffly Apron. Brilliant name, I know! 🙂

I measured Lucy to see how tall it would need to be (her and her friend Amy are the same age so I just used Lucy for measuring). I used scraps of fabric I had around the house and even an old shrunken t-shirt I had around – that’s what gave me the cute little pocket!!

A closer up view of all the ruffles. I made it nice and girlie since Amy is a girlie girl!
Lucy informed me she needs one too. So I’ll be making another one with a few variations this week!

Linking it up at The Persimmon Perch and DIY Show Off and It’s so Very Cheri and

    Marie - Loved it, loved it, loved it. We had the grandparents over for supper last night, and Aimee was wearing her apron and everyone marveled. And I bragged I knew someone as smart as you.

    I honestly want to find a white dress and have her wear the apron with it to church. It is perfect.
