For a [belated] Mother’s Day Gift for Nolan’s mom, I made her a gardening apron.
I used a canvas drop cloth for the material so it could hold up to all the dirtying up she would do to it.
Used an apron my mom gave me for Valentines Day once for the pattern. Then I trimmed the outer edges in a yellow bias tape I made.
Then I got Jace involved! I wanted to use his finger prints with fabric paint to make little flowers and then write “Bloom where you’re planted” on it. But Jace had other ideas.
He didn’t want just his finger used. He wanted his whole hand covered in paint. And really, he just wanted to make a huge mess. I was able to coax a few hand prints out of him though. (Word to the wise: wear clothes you don’t care about when using fabric paint with a one year old.)
Since we had handprints instead of flowers, I wrote “Mini hands make light work!” on it instead.
Purple bias tape was used for the ties. I think it turned out really sweet, and Nolan’s mom loved it!
Take a moment and visit the fun parties I’ll be linking up with!
