My friend gave me a great idea for her daughter's 2nd birthday present. They love spending time in the kitchen. They are really into baking cupcakes recently. She said her daughter really needs a cute apron. I decided to whip her a cute little semi-homemade apron.
This project was inspired by May Arts ribbon and PSA Essentials Monogram stamps.
I purchased white aprons from Michael's and dressed it up with ruffled laced ribbon from May Arts. I jut kept on adding layers upon layers of pretty pink ribbon.
After sewing the ribbon and reaching the desired height. I added a cute chevron band for the apron tie. Fold and sew band across the waist.
After finishing the apron design. I added a wonderful monogram stamp from PSA Essentials. I used it as my embroidery pattern. I picked pink and black threads.
I did a simple satin stitch and covered the entire letter.
I also used a back stitch for the outer circle. I added light blue beads to cover the black dots from the stamp.
There all pretty and girly.
The cutest little apron I have ever seen.
I picked out several items to complete the gift basket. What about those cute pink pigs? I just love them. I also got a set of colorful mixing bowls. You can definitely make an adult version for a birthday or bridal shower gift. You can purchase the grown up aprons from Michael's and create away.
I just love how this project turned out. The monogram just brings it all together. I think I need to make one for myself too!
