Cupcakes for Christmas

Everyones loves cupcakes, and with cupcakes comes baking, and with baking comes aprons of course!

I’d consider myself well practiced in making adult aprons, but I recently made some mini aprons for two little ladies for the first time. I was asked to make two aprons for little girls whose mum loves baking as a nice Christmas gift for them. The brief was cupcakes, and they had to be identical with their names on the front.

I sourced some perfect fabric from the Etsy shop, Sakizome, which came all the way from Singapore, for the main apron. For the lining and pocket I used some cute pink gingham.
Because the names of the little girls, Lily and Mia, are quite short, I had enough space to also add a little cupcake picture – after drawing these out first, I then embroidered them onto a little rectangle panel of apron fabric that I then sewed onto the pocket, which I also edged in pink ric rac to make it prettier (you can never have enough pink for little girls!).

SInce making these, I have another two little girl aprons the same as these to make, and two little boys (with farm animal fabric which is equally as cute), in time for Chrimbo – best get [Christmas] cracking…
