Apples & Pears Pinafore - Nie Nie Day Auction



Many of you have heard about the plane crash in which Stephanie and Christian Nielson were in involved in earlier this month. Both are in very serious condition and have months and months of hospital stays and surgeries ahead (with costs going into the millions). Gabrielle at Design Mom has declared today "Nie Nie Day" and has coordinated a huge silent auction via the web. She has a list of all the sites participating with links to their site and what they are auctioning off. ALL PROCEEDS from these auctions will go towards their recovery fund. So spread the word to your family and friends. There are a lot of fun items up for sale (I think she said there are 165+ sites participating). Here's Mine! Want your own?



I've been wanting to make an apron for my Tiny Girl. Because, of course, she'll need an apron to wear while she plays with her kitchen. But then I realized what a futile fantasy that was because I'd have to tie it on every time and she could care less if she looks the part while she plays. I was torn between making her a classic bib apron that would be cute or a smock that I could use as a bib and protect her clothes - now that she insists on feeding herself with a fork, no matter what we're eating. However, I had this pattern already and I think it will make a great clothing cover-up. The neck is high enough to protect from most spills and it should be easy enough to slip over her clothes.


I may still have to make a play apron to match her kitchen, but I love how this turned out! Do you LOVE the cupcake pocket!?!


Want one!?! I'm auctioning one just like this in your choice of size 6 month to 4 Toddler for Nie Nie Day. Leave a comment with your bid. You have up until Friday at Midnight. You'll go to Nie Nie's fund to pay, come back with your receipt and I'll send it off to you in a day or two! (I'll email you details on how to pay, so if your email is not on your profile, please leave it in your bid! Thanks!)

That is so cute. I have made dozens of those dresses from that pattern.It's been a while though. None of mine have ever turned out that cute. I love it. I used to make mine reversable so if they got it dirty I could turn it around.I used them as sun dresses I never though of them as aprons or pinafores. Great idea, she will love it.
