Yesterday was my cousin's daughters 5th birthday and we celebrated with a barbecue at Burleigh Beach. Burleigh Beach has got to be one of the nicest beaches on the Gold Coast but it was so damn windy and cold it was a bit of a bummer. But Grace had fun riding her new bike up and down the footpath and that is all that matters.
If Grace turns out anything like her mother she is going to be an amazing cook and have a great love of food. So, to foster that love of food I decided to make her an apron so she can start helping her mum in the kitchen.
I used this tutorial and just changed the neck strap a little. Instead of using a d ring to make the strap adjustable I put a button on the inside of the apron and a few button holes on the strap.
I paired the apron with a set of alphabet cookie cutters. Grace is starting prep next year and I figured learning letters and spelling is going to be a lot more fun if you can learn with cookies. I know I would prefer to learn that way! I had so much fun making this birthday present that I am hoping to make a few Christmas presents this year too but with the wedding I don't know if I will have much time. I have made a list though so hopefully I can get a few done. Fingers crossed!
