Today’s finish is a somewhat unexpected project. It just happened. This just might be the best kind of starts and finishes.
My niece, owner of the quilt in this post, has a mother that is a baker. (This, by the way, is a dangerous sort of person to have in the family… calories seem to migrate this way much too frequently.) She is a wonderful sister-in-law, and to see her and my brother’s family grow has been so precious.
It occurred to me one morning, while snuggling my littlest, that the tiny little fingers belonging to my niece will soon be wanting to help her mama in the kitchen. And that means she needs an apron. And … I just happened to have some leftover fabric from her quilt.
I didn’t want to go out and buy a pattern. It seemed like it would be a simple enough thing to draft my own and create it. Completely unexpected was just how much I loved this process. Within an hour or two, her apron was made with just a couple finishing touches left to do, the little bits that make it special.
It is made in a toddler size, that could go up to about 5 or so. I took a couple shots of my daughter modeling the apron (as I don’t have an extra toddler about), to give you an idea of size.
This post is about family and growth and traditions passed on, memories made. We are so blessed to have the newest little hands in our family.
