Mia's New Apron

The subject of Crissy dolls came up on Facebook this past week. I no longer have my childhood Barbies or Dawn dolls, but I still have Crissy, Mia and Tressy, and all of their clothes. Last night, I decided I would make an apron for my Mia and show her off today for National Wear Your Apron Day because I wasn't sure I would find someone to take a picture of me to mark the occasion. Plus, it gave me a good reason to stitch up that cute puppy dog pattern I posted yesterday. I had some major issues sewing on the bias tape by hand (I really need to learn how to work that sewing machine), and finally I just dug out the fabric glue and used that to attach it. Mia doesn't seem to mind my craptastic glue job, does she?



Back in 1973 or so, I made Mia her first apron. I can honestly say my hand sewing hasn't really improved much since then.


I am off to get dressed and choose an apron to wear today. Happy Apron Day and don't forget to tie one on!

Edited to add: The Apronista wants links your apron posts today, plus there's a giveaway.

I'm not sure that I've ever seen such adorable miniature aprons! I'll admit that I am NOT wearing an apron today... it would only look like I was trying to hide my growing belly. And trust me, it's no use. I'll wear one vicariously through you ;)

Cute cute cute. How big a doll is Mia? I think I need to make an apron for my granddaughter's doll. Dolls love craptastic clothing. Mine never stopped smiling even when I wrapped toilet paper around them for a wedding dress.

Mia's apron is great. (I can't see any glue.) Also, re the next post: I also like how she smiles when somebody takes her picture. (But it's always nice to see a picture of you.)

Oh my goodness, Crissy and Velvet, and Mia! I have them all and still do! I'm afraid of my cellar, but I'm going to get hubby to go get them for me. I have all my barbies at my mom's, and I have my treasured Baby Tender Love still too1 Love the aprons, and I totally forgot about Apron day! Darn it! Thanks for the smile today! hugs, michelle
