Happy Birthday, Kirsten

This weekend, my niece Kirsten celebrated her 3rd birthday. For her present, I made her an apron, since she is a big fan of helping her mom cook/bake, and they got her a lovely kitchen set for Christmas.

Looks like it fits, with room to grow!

I knew that material was perfect for her the moment I saw it.

Of course it could not be from me without corduroy somewhere (the pocket). I really enjoyed adding the lace trim around the top and the blue ribbon ties across the waist. My biggest mistake was accidentally sewing the waist tie onto the underside of the pocket (oops - how did that ribbon get down there?).

A quick snip and that was fixed. Overall, I was pleasantly surprised with how this turned out, and foresee many apron adventures in my future ;)

(Her party had a Greek theme, and here's a shot of the cake I brought:

I'm looking forward to the comments to see who gets the joke first...hehe.)
