So I did what we all do these days, I googled it. These are some of the examples I found. And they are varied... these were all examples of 'tutu aprons'.
|Even a Christmas one with a layer of tulle underneath|
I also found another one for sale with masses of tulle and bows which had the following warning. 'For baking only. Do not wear when using hotplates'. But I think I've got an idea of what my niece would like.
|Don't go near the hotplates while wearing this one|
I saw my niece at a family dinner tonight ( my nephew's 18th at an Italian restaurant) and gave her and her husband a bag of gifts for Christmas and one for her birthday. I knitted a scarf for her today as a little 'extra' and popped that in with her other gift. So we've left them that bag of gifts to take home tomorrow.
I didn't put an IOU in the birthday card but I found a pattern that I bought a while ago on Ebay that might just do... Next step is to look through my considerable fabric stash.
|I knew it would come in handy one day!|
