The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

The Christmas Craft Collab: No. 8 - DIY No-Sew Apron

 
It's... it's a very sad day. Not only was the Nutcracker called off, but it's.. it's the last CCC. *wails*
 
Over the course of this month, I hope you've enjoyed the four Christmas crafts here and the four over at Delightful World of Dolls by the epic Madi!
(she's totally epic, ya'll. Her contact on the phone I use to text her is literally 'the epic madi')
 
There's been a week for décor, food, clothing, and now... gifts!




 
 
 

 
 
Today's craft, the DIY No-Sew Doll apron, is absolutely perfect for the doll who loves to bake! Actually, Grace and Josie made this one for their awesome friend Gabby!
 
Ready to find out how you can make this absolutely adorable apron?
Let's do it!
Just warning you, though, this was around midnight and I used my sister's phone. *cringes* Bad idea.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
YOU WILL NEED:
all of my favorite things
just kidding... kinda. If you've crafted with me all month, you'll know my favorite crafting supplies:
hot glue gun (PLEASE do this with an adult's permission... unless it's around midnight)
felt (red, white, green)
scissors
embellishments (like mini pom-poms!)
red cord (at least 24 inches)
optional: mini cookie cutters (I got these from Hobby Lobby - aaammaaaaazing store!)
 
The first step is to cut a rectangle of green felt about uhh.. *racks brain to remember how long* eight inches by four? Yeah. Let's go with that. And then you'll need a 24 in. strand of cord. Hot glue the cord onto the felt and fold the felt over for a cleaner edge (also hot glue that.. with permission of course.).

Cut a 4x2 in. rectangle and a 4x1 in. rectangle. Hot glue three sides (two sides and bottom) of the 4x2 to create a pocket. For the flap, just glue the top of the 4x1 in. above the 4x2. Or, just look at the picture and avoid getting confused.


Add POM POMSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS LOTS OF THEM LOTS OF THE PRETTY SHINY THINGIES! *tosses mini pompoms into the air* YAY FOR POM POMS!
Yeah. I like those things. I added some along the bottom and the flap. Ta-da! Isn't it just adorable?!?!
This is great for making Christmas cookies, or gingerbread houses...
 
As an extra little surprise, I added some of these mini cookie cutters.
 
So, craft this little apron and wrap it up for your baker!
Merry Christmas (almost)!
 
Oh, and hey - don't forget to email photos of any of the CCC crafts you've done (2016 or 2017, mine or Madi's) to dollsnall4ever@gmail.com! (Madi's email is on her blog. :D)
If you send it in TODAY, you'll be featured in Madi's recap post over at Delightful World of Dolls!

  1. AHHH THAT'S SO CUTE! I know my Josefina would love this.

    "Or, just look at the picture and avoid getting confused." XDDD THAT'S EXACTLY SOMETHING I'D SAY IT'S PERFECT. XDD

    By the way, did anyone send you any pictures of crafts of yours or mine they've done? Are we BOTH doing CCC recaps on Christmas Eve or what? I have mine already typed up and scheduled (just updating it now with this craft) but wanted to make sure in case you had any other ideas.
