It wasn’t my idea. My surpassingly creative and gifted friend Ashley made Norah a miniature apron for her first birthday last December. Norah used to run around the house wearing it (plus an assortment of winter caps and one of my slippers…you get the picture). It was a sad, sad day when I realized it was way too short.
So I copied her design only made it larger, and this summer my mother helped me make it on her stellar sewing machine. (When I say “helped” I mean that I made the tea and ironed the fabric and she did all of the hard parts! Now my sewing friends, like Haley, probably are thinking, What hard parts? And all I can say is that, for me, it’s all a hard part!)
As you can see, we had to make it quite a bit larger! I used two fabric remnants from Ashley, and bias tape for the edges. We deliberately made it a little big, but Norah’s already enjoying it.
What about the old one? We kept it around.
We know someone who can use it.
