Sweet Lil' Apron

Finished the Cutie Pie Valentine apron!

I had created a pocket on the front but decided I didn't like it and had to start over. I am glad I did. I think it turned out much better than I expected! I LOVE the lace scalloped trim. So sweet.

It's a refurbished apron, so it started out as a skirt and involved into this apron. I got the idea from Jen Sue. It allowed me to spend more time on the details and have a sturdier, better quality apron! 

I hope my partner enjoys it. I get the vibe she wanted something girlie. I wasn't able to respond to all of her requests (mostly because I'm not the best seamstress) but I'm hoping some of my extra additions and wrapping make up for what might be missing. 

Oh and I made this GENIUS pot holder! Here's the video for the tutorial. So smart.

It really did take no time at all! I did my best to make it match the apron. Next time, I will add the tag before I sew.

There it is! The potholder, apron, and cookie cutter. Now I'm just waiting on these cutie pie cards I won and a spark of creativity for the vintage tuck-in. Still can't figure out what to do with pretty vintage paper I bought... but it'll come to me!

Cards arrived. Picked a lovely girlie one, signed, and sealed it. And I figured out what to do with the paper too. Its a clipboard!


  1. Had a thought for your supercute vintage paper. Decoupage a wooden frame, then tuck one of your cutie pie cards inside for an instant Valentine decoration. ;)

  2. Ooh, another idea - you could decoupage a little recipe card box.

  3. I'm so glad I saw your potholders. It inspired me to make some for my swap partner. You package looks lovely. I love the above comment about decopaging a recipe box. Awesome idea!

  4. What an adorable apron! I love aprons, I'm up to 3 already!
    the heart on the front is an amazing touch :)
