ATC Aprons for our live swap.

APRONS - Cool theme! 
immediately had images conjured in my head. A gazillion possiblities -but like every other theme off I went googling for more inspiration and a starting point...
That's when I landed myself apon this little gem...
a "clothespin doll apron" (i'll let you google that one).
So cute, just what every little girl should have...
The ATCs are made with paper towel inserts instead of cardstock
the dolls are the height of a 20 cent coin
I had some little dolly pegs somewhere but they weren't quite small enuff!!! In a moment of madness I decided to make my own pegs. Ended up splitting skewers into threes, shortening the middle section then glueing all three sections back together again!!
Bought some beads online thru ebay-http://stores.shop.ebay.com.au/Theme-Beads  (they arrived within 2 days of ordering and soooo cheap), my dolls came together nicely, I love em!! So many more to make... so off i go.
I have about 20 days wish me luck!!!
