Aprons for Animals

, ,

  Little girls love dress-ups. They love to dress-up little animals, too. I found several small pieces of fabric with an old-fashioned/vintage look and made teeny, tiny aprons for some playroom animals I know.     I made the ties nice and long for little fingers to work with and used bright and cheery colors.

Who Do You Think You Are ?
