Frugal Friday

Hey there,
Happy Frugal Friday!

Last weekend was crazy around here. We had two birthday parties and times with friends. One of the birthday parties we went to was Big Boy's best friend. She's 8 months older than Big Boy and the daughter of our small group host family. Their place has been like a second home to all of us. So despite a tight budget, we waited to get her something nice.

I picked up a cute little sweater at Target on 50% off. And then remembered this cute little apron; I knew it would be perfect. So it was just a matter of getting my sewing machine out and putting it together. A little towel from Walmart and some ribbon... and here's what I ended up with.

I folded the top fourth over and double stitched the ribbon on the front.

I also folded over the ends of the ribbon and stitched it to prevent fraying.

Honestly, it was a little big. Trying it on afterwards, it was close to being a good size for an adult. Very cute and very simple. Plus extra frugal.

I saw your entry on Biblical Womanhood. I love this idea! One of my son's best friends is a girl, and being a mom of boys, it's always difficult for me to figure out a unique, fun idea for b-day girls! She will LOVE this! Now. . . I have to really dig for my sewing maching!!
