Deanie's almost 6 years old!

This is how I spent my time last night (starting at 7p and finishing around 1a) and about two hours this morning. I'm finally finished! We're all set for Nadine's Sixth Birthday party tomorrow (at 3p). I can't wait! I have extra large cupcakes with sprinkles and The Twisted Sifter is coming to help them decorate cakes and learn different flute techniques. They will have a blast! Ten little girls with icing... lol Shouldn't be messy at ALL! (ha!)

The aprons can be found at Hobby Lobby for about 3 bucks each and just pick what kind of fabric you like. I used cupcake fabric (of course, what did you expect! surely you didn't think I'd pick out unicorns or pixie's, right? shudder the thought!) and did the letters from scratch. That was the hardest part, really, making the letters. I just free-handed my own "font script" and then put the fabric on heat-n-bond and cut them out, ironed them on and then did an applique stitch on top. :) Easy peasy japaneasy! I added little ribbons at the top corners (sewed them so they won't come off) and made a large pocket with two places to put "cooking things". They're perfect for little hands. :) I love how they turned out. Of course, they're not perfect but they sure are cute!

Natalie's is a different fabric print, she wanted something with more of an "older" look. Crazy girl. I think someone needs to tell her she's nine. lol! Her friend Peyton is coming too and I did her's the same as Nat's. By the way, the ribbons look black in this photo but they're not, they're deep purple and match the purple in the stripey fabric. :)

They're certainly nothing fancy but I think that they're going to be a great keepsake. Don't you?

Laurie, those are SO CUTE! I'm going to have to check out this Hobby Lobby place ... too many people have scored big there for me to just keep driving past! LOL

Great job and the girls are going to have an awesome time!
