I'm working on an apron for my friend's daughter. She (the daughter, not the friend) is 5 years old and loves all things pink. We decided on this colaboration because my friend recently had her 4th baby (who is by all accounts extremely adorable) and thus has no time to sew, and because I couldn't stand idly by while someone I know buys a child's apron from a ritzy store (which didn't stop me from buying two birds - BIRDS, of all things, but let's talk about that some other time, hmkay?).
Here's the apron I talked her out of buying:
Now this is my problem. We discussed adding a cute design on the front of the apron, and I thought it would be really cute to have flowers "growing out of" the pocket. Since I needed something playful and inspiring to do today, I worked on the design of the flowers. Now I have too many ideas.
All buttons? Ric-rac and buttons? Fabric and buttons? Fabric, ric-rac, and buttons? HELP ME!!!
There will be three flowers (the fourth one here is only representing the 4th possible design). You have to (HAVE TO!) vote on the following:
2. petal colors (do we like the green-yellow?)
3. center color (if you choose the design with the button center)
FYI: My friend chose the fabrics. The pocket will be pink (just like the trim you see in the first picture and the center of the fabric center flowers). I wouldn't be devastated if I didn't have to sew on three million buttons. Just sayin'.
Here are your contestants:
BUTTONS & RIC-RAC
BUTTONS & FABRIC
BUTTONS, FABRIC, RIC-RAC
