Apron for Amelie.

My cousin, Amelie, called me the other day:
"Hi unni. Could you get me an apron?"
"What for?" I asked.
"I wanna bake," she said.

I got a feeling she's been heavily influenced by a book series I had gotten for her birthday called "Cupcake Diaries".

So instead of buying her an apron, I made one.  I refuse to be a fabric hoarder and had to make a bit of a dent in my stock.  I had bought this candy patterned cotton/linen fabric from Spoon Flower awhile back:

Sorry, but it appears this particular print doesn't exist anymore!
I went to Purl Soho to buy some fabric remnants and cotton twill. I needed just a little more fabric to make the apron. Remnants were the perfect amount and very inexpensive.

Luckily, Amelie's favorite color is purple so I was glad the color was already incorporated into the fabric print. 

It took me just a couple hours to construct and finish it! Sur le Table had some essential baking tools on sale so I picked up a purple spatula. Now, Amelie is prepared to start baking!
