apron for gigi

My little niece, Ginger (aka Gigi) is turning 4 this week. Last night I quickly tried to fancy up this store bought apron for her for her birthday. I also made a couple of the felt covered barrettes to go with it. When I was about 6 years old, Santa brought me a little apron and it had a tiny whisk and wooden spoon. I LOVED that apron. Do you remember that mom? It was made in red and white fabric with red binding trim and ties. Anyways, I was hoping to find some of those little kitchen gadgets to add to the pockets of this apron. Now she can help her mom (I hope her mom wants help).

*note* for some reason the colors look pretty bad in these photos. I tried to touch them on up just the editing that comes with my microsoft software that I view the photos in, but no luck. I promise it is prettier in person.

I'll bet that she will totally love it! So perfect for a little girl and such a good idea for a gift!

Very cute! JoAnn's had mini rolling pins, whisks, spatulas, etc. in their dollar section. Good luck!
