Angels in Aprons!!
I am in a dolly apron exchange on Mary Janes Farm. One of the aprons goes to my partner and the other one goes to MJ. Frannie thought this one up. In keeping with my repurposing drive...if you scroll down and look at my daughter's costume, you will notice a similarity to the aprons and the sleeves! I repurposed her dress into a sleeveless dress and used one of the sleeves to make these two sweet little dolly aprons.
The first set of dolly aprons I made for the exchange, was snatched up by my daughters!! They came home from school and saw them side by side on the ironing board and thought I had made them for them and were so thrilled and excited. I didn't have the heart to tell them any different! So set number two is done and ready to mail! Well, all except a little finishing hand sewing on them.
The angels with aprons were made by my mother before she passed away. She was one heck of a fiber and doll artist. Well, it is midnight and I am very tired. Early day tomorrow and this is the last week of school. I have to be up at 5:30 to cut my husband's hair. Thanks for blogging with me!
