Amanda’s Apron


I LOVED my houseful of little boys! But I was also super-excited when my niece Amanda was born. She used to come for an Amanda-Aunt Kathy overnighter every summer where we’d play, sew, craft, embroider, bake, and shop. Now Amanda is grown-up, married, and a high school math teacher several states away (besides being beautiful, she’s also S-M-A-R-T!), but on a recent visit back home she came to sew with me! She loved the blog posts with the ruffly aprons (here and here), so that’s what we made. Amanda picked these lovely, summery fabrics from my stash, which are all from my bloggy friend Laura’s LC’s Cottage Etsy Shop. Isn’t it just perfect on her? ♥

  1. 🙂 yes the apron is very pretty Katherine! 🙂 glad you share moments like these with your niece, I have a nephew and a son, I told my brothers is time for them to give me a niece so I can craft her! 🙂

    • Thank you, Ginny! It’s fun to think of the different focuses our summer get-togethers have taken, from doing American Girl crafts to copying family recipes to going clothes shopping for college! 🙂

  2. I’m so jealous – my nieces were here recently and I hoped they’d want to craft with me, too, but they were way more interested in swimming (to be fair, it was hot!) Very cute apron.
