Pink Cupcakes


I have been busy making Christmas gifts.  I found the most wonderful book, "All Dolled Up" by Joan Hinds.  It features patterns for Girls and their 18" Dolls.  I finished this little pink Cupcake apron for one of my granddaughters.  I purchased the fabric at JoAnn's.  (No I didn't have any cupcake fabric in my stash.)  The apron is completely lined and is reversible.  I will make a matching doll apron using the same fabrics. 

Below is a photo taken from the book.  Since the cupcakes on my fabric were larger, I decided to omit the applique cupcake.  The instructions are very easy to follow.  Book if full of great ideas for girls clothing and accessories and matching items for doll.  My granddaughters have American Girl Doll (gifts from previous Christmases).

The second little girl's apron is show below.  Since I have two granddaughters, I decided to use the same cupcake novelty print but changed the second fabric.  This way they will know which one is theirs.  I'm thinking a Mommie apron from the same fabric might be a great gift for my DIL.  I purchased the last of the cupcake fabric and think there may be enough left over for an adult size apron. 

Since I'm featuring pink cakes, I thought you might like to see the Pink Cake pincushion I made for a friend last year.  You can read the post here.  The matching apron is here

Thanks for visiting my blog on Pink Saturday.  For a list of all participants check out Beverly's How Sweet the Sound.

Hi Pam, happy PINK Saturday! Those aprons are awesome, you did a wonderful job! One year when my girls were little, my mom made matching aprons for my girls and me and my girls thought it was the coolest thing. They HAD to wear them when we (I) made cookies. Have a great weekend, Nan

Hi Pam,

The apron turned out really nice. I am sure your granddaughter will love it. I love that cake pincushion. A red velvet cake would be perfect for me. :)

what a wonderful grandmama you are. Those are adorable!! It's funny you mentioned the 18" dolls as I found brand new outfits for the American Girl dolls at a yard sale this morning. Never used...each outfit ...$1.00. I bought all she had for my grand-daughter's doll. And the cool thing was, some of the outfits were a cheerleader, gymnastics and purple pajamas...all the things that Boo loves right now in her life. Lucky score. Hope you are having a fabulous Pink Saturday. Eat a cupcake! They are good for you. :) xo Lynn

What fun these must have been! And the cupcakes are so far away from your usual vintage style. Once in awhile I get caught straying away from the norm too!
