Chloe Apron and Miss Buttons


I've been working so much lately and finally had a weekend off so I finished an apron for my niece Chloe for her 4th birthday.
The details are really cute and she just planted her first camellia so I think she'll like the garden theme.





When I was in Melbourne in April I came across the Miss Buttons pattern http://sewyourown.com.au/patternskits.aspx
It is the easiest soft toy ever to make so I whipped one up with the scraps from Chloe's apron so she'd have a little friend to cook and garden with.





It's just over 4 weeks till we leave for our 2 month escape to Europe. I have loads of things that need to be designed, sewn, knitted etc before we go so I'll be moving along quickly over the next month.

One final thing to share is this flickr group http://www.flickr.com/groups/embroideredstuff/ Be warned though, it has the potential to consume hours of time ...

Hi, Thanks for the lovely comment on my blog. I love the apron...so cute! Have great time in Europe...any space left in the suitcase? I miss my family in Europe, but Australia is fantastic to live in. Thanks, Bianca
