Birthday party checklist

I think I'm ready for O's birthday party tomorrow.
  • party bags packed - tick
  • birthday cake baked (lemon drizzle cake, cut into squares and stacked in a pyramid - I've had very clear instructons) - tick
  • sitting room floor hoovered to get rid of stray bits of cotton - tick
  • birthday girl's dress ironed - tick
  • party games decided upon - tick
  • post party bottle of wine for G and me chilling in fridge - tick
  • six little gingham aprons sewn for the birthday girl and her friends - tick

This last may be the nicest thing I've ever sewn. We are going to cook jam tarts and ice biscuits together, so I thought they all needed some little matching aprons.

And yes, I did trim them with ribbon. Of course I did.

Pattern adapted from the Vintage Apron Pattern in Amy Karol's Bend The Rules Sewing.


  1. what gorgous aprons, how I wish sometimes that I had a daughter sometimes, I wonder if I can come up anything quite as cute for a boy??

    hope you have a fab party and enjoy the post party drinks afterward.
