I’ve finally listed a new Item on my Etsy shop!
This Cute Apron set for the kiddies!
Its made in a cute pink and blue stretch fabric and fully lined with a shiny pink material.
It comes with a child sized rolling pin, mr&mrs cookie cutter (also UK made) and whisk. Perfect for making your own cookies. A good festive snack for the little ones!
I’ve even sewn my own handmade label onto the back!

This particular Apron used for the photographs was made to give as a tombola prize for a coffee morning my Aunt is holding for the downs syndrome group she runs (as she has a child with downs herself). She just received her package today and seemed very happy with the items I’ve sent her (I also sent a small tote bag).
This was my first time working to a deadline. I said i’d make her something on the 13th knowing that the coffee morning was this saturday (the 20th) and I would also be working a 40+ hour week so knew i was cutting it very fine. But I was very good at keeping myself motivated (watching project runway helped a lot) and managed to get it sewn and sent just in time!
I have proved to myself that I can stay motivated and work to deadlines which was one of the things I was worried about with accepting custom orders, but now I feel much more confident in my abilities!
I really hope she can send me some photographs of the event!
Until then I have some paint balling to do (we’re going tomorrow as a belated birthday present to Ashley)! And more pictures of another project to upload!
Busy busy busy!
‘Till next time!
