A Christmas Apron for Daisy

Because she thinks everyone should have a Christmas-themed waist apron that *fits*. No messing about with a grown-up sized apron.

I found a bundle of Christmas napkins at the thrift store--eight matching ones and two others. I thought I would use the odd ones to make her apron. She was very upset at the idea of having "odd" napkins in her apron. But once we had that idea ironed out, she gave me explicit directions. The border print was to be trimmed off one side of each napkin, and those sides were to be sewn together before the skirt was gathered and attached to the waistband. Right, Daisy.


I like to make you happy.

I love the hair! I can't decide if it's Gretel or Princess Leia.

Oh, and the apron. I love that too.

Oh, my word - she's going to open up her own fashion house, with you as her "Parisian" seamstress.

If she ever wants to sell that apron, I'll buy it. Are you all going to watch "Heidi" now? (the cute hairdo)

What a ticket!

Wonderful! I also happen to have a little girl that would love an apron. Why haven't I made her one yet? She is always at my side in the kitchen.

well, impressive. It's really lovely and I would not have thought of joining the two napkins.

And her hair! My 5 year old is all about looped braids right now and I'm wondering if she saw that somewhere? Funny girls.

She is absolutely adorable! I love that she's always in a dress, on her own accord. I hope Miss Daisy has many a good times baking in her apron with you and her sisters.
