My daughter wants to have an Alice in Wonderland birthday party this year, and has been asking for me to make her a dress and apron. Well I got on the web to do a little research and look for some ideas, when I landed on Amy Karol's (Angry Chicken) Tie One On blog. She is having an Alice in Wonderland apron contest. I of course had to participate. I was going to be making one anyway, so I might as well, right?!
When I looked at the deadline, it said May 1st. I originally wasn't going to make this apron until July, but 24 hrs works too! So, I stayed up all night and frogged my way through an Alice apron. I made it out of a king size eyelet pillowcase and pink bias tape. I had to use the seam ripper more than I cared for but overall it turned out OK.
There is a funny ending to this story though. When I went to send my pictures to Amy, I had to go back to the Tie One On website to get her email address. The first thing I saw when the page opened, was that the contest had been extended to June 1st! I laughed so hard! So much for staying up all night! It was my own stupid fault for not checking the main blog page for updates. I only read the page I landed on in my search which said May 1st.
So, for once in my life, I am a month early in entering a contest! Whoo hoo!
Now I can procrastinate on finishing the matching dress! =)
