Cupcake aprons

I am still in Christmas gift making mode and have made 2 aprons for my nieces Laura and Tess. Sofie helped me tonight with the sewing and pressing and Ellen did a little pose with Eames to show the end result. We used two pink and two green co ordinating cupcake cotton fabrics from Spotlight. No pattern was used. We made it up as we went. We made the ties long enough to come around to the front to tie. Some rick rack or trim would have been nice but none could be found!
Here is a closer view of the pink one:
And an even closer view to show the fabric properly. There is silver sparkles on the fabric too.

Since my last post I have made two more little boy sets and am half way through my mitt making. Note to self....do NOT leave it until the week before Christmas to start making gifts......

Cute! I wanted to make matching aprons for my sister and her youngest daughter but I just couldn't pull it off this holiday season. Maybe next year...

Ellen looks like she's ready to serve the line at Sprinkles, the top cupcake place in Los Angeles. She looks adorable and so do your aprons, what wonderful gifts.

How true! Let's start our Holiday sewing when the stores start decorating for the Holidays!

Hey, starting the week before Christmas is a terrific plan, that way you know you cannot make complicated things! The aprons are very cute. In fact, I have suddenly decided that my mum and SIL need an apron slipped into their present. Thanks! ( I think ?)

Nice aprons. I saw that same fabric in SL and almost bought it for aprons too but I was good and kept walking. :)

I saw your post on oven mitts at the same time as I was making one for the first time using the same quilting pattern as you and the green gingham cupcake fabric from Spotlight. The mitt was to match an apron made out of the green cupcake fabric. I hope this link works: http://www.flickr.com/photos/23264112@N03/3128001074/
