I never thought I would be doing this in a million years. Just for the record, I had to share.
Seriously! It actually looks like I know what I’m doing. :) In the back of my mind I have always wondered how my daughters would learn to sew. It seems like every girl wants to learn at one time or another. I just never thought I would be the teacher. Andrea inspired me one day to make birthday aprons. I was reading this post and decided it would be fun for Kaylee and I to tackle this project together.
It was easy enough for us to do. If I can do this, anyone can! Look how proud she is.
That face makes it so worth it! It’s just a bonus that they turned out so cute. We decided that this would be her birthday gift to friends for one year. We can personalize them by finding out each friends favorite color. We included a box of chocolate cake mix and creme cheese frosting along with the recipe for Homemade Oreo’s on a cute recipe card from Kaylee’s Kitchen. Here are the aprons we’ve made so far.
She has been so excited to give these away as gifts. They have been a big hit and made with love. We decided Kaylee had to have her own birthday apron too. She picked out the fabric and helped sew most of it.
Our recipe for Homemade Oreo’s: (Super easy for kids to make on their own.)
1 Pkg. Chocolate Cake Mix
3/4 Cup Shortening
* Mix and roll into balls. Bake @ 350 for 8 min.
Creme Cheese Frosting:
8 oz. creme cheese
3 cups powder sugar
1/4 cup butter
2 tsp. vanilla
Smear frosting on one cookie and top with the other. If you want the really easy kid friendly way just buy the store bought creme cheese.
