She's at it Again

Sophie's definitely bitten by the sewing bug! She asks to sew quite often. She has also really enjoyed baking lately, and has twice searched the internet for recipes and made them all on her own!

So when I saw some really cute baking themed fabric at my fabulous place of work, ETC I had to get them for her. For the following projects I purchased 1/4 yard of 3 cute fabrics. I combined this with about a yard of yellow fabric and a teal fat quarter I had at home. This was enough to make all our projects!

First, I made her apron at a girls late night at my friend Denise's home. It turned out pretty cute even considering I had no pattern and my choice of beverage that night was a soy chai latte with Bailey's (if you haven't tried it, it almost had an eggnog flavor with the Bailey's and was toooo good!)

Anyway, here is the apron:
I wanted Sophie to be able to sew some projects with the left over fabric. We decided on towels and hot pads. After a trip to JoAnn's (for "Insul-Bright" and bias tape) and Target (for cute kitchen towels) we got started. The towel tutorial we found on, you guessed it, Pinterest. It has you cut the towels in half to make 2 from each, which we forgot to do on the first one {center of the photo}.
 We used no pattern for the hotpads but it is just a back fabric, batting, "Insul-Bright" and top fabric quilted together. The edges are then incased in double fold bias tape. That's it!

Here is Sophie and her new baking cuteness {she made the t-shirt at a summer kid's sewing class at JoAnn's}:

 We chose these to hang on our oven since they match the color. Don't hate me for it's retro, shabby look. You're jealous, I know!
