Worker Guy wants an apron too


So amidst all the girlie things I've been sewing lately, Worker Guy has expressed a desire to have something made for him too. I don't know why it's so hard to find a decent sewing project for boys. If anyone has ideas, please let me know!

So I bought fabric the other day and still didn't have a clue of what to make. I finally settled on this 'toy truck carrying apron' and added grommets and brass D-rings for lots of hardware. This is an improvised version of a craft apron tutorial I found from Autum at Creative Little Daisy. I've made a few of the craft aprons and really like how they turned out.


This is one of my craft aprons, but Worker was not up for a photo session - he's been this way for a little while.... can't wait for this phase to pass...

Anyway I also finished an apron for a friend's daughter - it will match the one I made for my friend at Christmas - mother-daughter aprons! I also had extra fabric and tried making some kid-sized oven mitts. I still need to finish the trim...

The birthday party is next weekend and my girls are all ready for the 'Country Picnic' theme with their matching skirts, old-fashioned aprons and eyelet-trimmed blouses. They're getting bonnets at the party. I'll be sure to have some photos!

That's awesome! You-know-who is going to be begging for one the moment he sees it in action.

Yeah, I thought he'd get pretty excited about it. But I don't think I should wait until his birthday to make it!
