MissC: "Miss Larri, can you make an apron for my American Girl doll? She needs to cook & she really can't do that without an apron."
Seams Inspired: "Sure, MissC! What colors would you like?"
MissC: "I dunno. Well...any color but the ugly colors."
Seams Inspired: "Which are the ugly colors?"
MissC: "You know. Like mud brown."
When your cute neighbor asks you to sew an apron for her AG Doll, you grab your scraps and start sewing! I had just a skitch of 'Magic Garden' left to make this apron.
ETA: Doll Apron Pattern can be found HERE.
The pattern is simple: Fold a piece of letter-size (8.5" x 11") paper in half lengthwise. Make a backwards lazy 'J' beginning about 3" down from the top right corner, ending about 2" in at the top. Clear as mud brown? I'll try to get a pattern up later this week.
If I make another, I will move up the side ties. These sit a little too-low. I should have test-fit them before I stitched. Alas, I was deep into sewing-mode at that point and didn't think it through. Ah, well. Prototypes are like that.
The back is a pink polka dot (Sorry - no photo of that). It could be reversible. I'm thinking perhaps I'll use hook-and-loop tape on the next one. Umm...I guess I'll be making more of these. I'm sew inspired. :)
Do your cute neighbors ask you to make things for them?
Happy Sunday afternoon!
