My niece, Clare, turned 14 last month. We kept putting off her birthday, and finally she and I celebrated together.
Clare likes to cook. Several years ago I made her and her sisters aprons for Christmas, and last year my mom made her a chef's jacket. We gave her a wavy chopper and cookbook for her birthday, but I felt the need to make something as well. And you can't have too many aprons, can you? The matching hot pad was completely wonky, but oh, well.
I asked if there was a color she was favoring and her response was a light green. So I went with this Denyse Schmidt fabric that I've been holding on to and some green broadcloth, trimmed with bias tape. (Chris, the bias tape is from that bag I snagged for what? a quarter? fifty cents? at JKV.)
I've got one more little thing to show you tomorrow, and then we'll be ready for a fantastic weekend.
See you then.....
