I've been itching to make my daughter an apron and it seemed like the perfect time as the Christmas baking season is almost upon us.  I found this dish towel at the dollar store.  The embroidery was already there (thus the slightly crooked lettering), along with the pom-poms.  I cut about 3 inches off the top of the towel, which became the 3-pocket pouch where she can keep all of her tools and supplies.  I think I'll be making more of these as gifts for her little friends.  It was so easy!! 

Edited because I forgot to mention that I followed  this basic idea, but obviously "made it my own"!  Wink

Button to attach the ribbon around her neck, with room to grow (I'm as pleased as punch with my new machine that does automatic button holes ~ this was my first attempt using that function!):
