One XMAS Item a Month

I had been working on something at the beginning of the month for this project, but due to some 'technical difficulties'  that is not my February finish.  I have, however, just finished a cute little apron for Little Miss.  The plan is to make up a little basket of kiddy-sized baking items and maybe the dry ingredients for a biscuit or cake mix in a jar.  I have made the apron in a size 4, but it seems quite tiny, so it may not be able to stay in the cupboard until Christmas.

I'm sorry about the poor photo.  It's a rubbish angle, but I'm sure you can get the idea. The original pattern (Butterick) has two pockets on the pattern.  I'm not sure if I should add them, or maybe just one, or leave it as it is.  What do you think??

Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Cooking with a little one ... no pockets, to much "stuff" ends up in them! Love the apron, very cute, I know my miss 2 (almost 3) would love it

  2. Gorgeous apron and a lovely idea for a gift.
    Sharon has a good point :)

  3. Lovely little apron in Christmas colours. It deserves to be used and enjoyed now. Personally I am a fan of pockets.

  4. Such a sweet little apron! Maybe one pocket? When my dd was little she loved putting things in her apron pockets !

  5. Lovely apron !! I like your basket idea very much !!
