Another Kid Apron

I busted out the sewing machine again.  My niece's birthday was last week and I decided to make her an apron like the Hello Kitty one I made for the neighbor girl.

I used the same tutorial for the apron itself and the double-fold bias tape.  I added the ruffle and pockets again, as well.

I had leftover fabric from The Girl's ladybug party, so that's what I used.  Instead of Hello Kitty, I did three different sized flowers and attached them with the same heat n' bond stuff I had used for the kitty face.  Then I did a zigzag stitch around each one.

Here's the latest, I-suck-at-sewing, project:

The sewing machine is still sitting on the floor in the dining room.
Remember the 10-minute Patio Curtain I made two years ago?
Yeah well, the squirrels chewed through the pocket hole last summer.
So I've got the drop cloth in the dryer and hope to be hangin' up a new one before the day is over.
For some reason, the pile on that side of the house has gotten bigger.

Please take a look at my sidebar for the parties I link up to.
