Danielle told me in advance (more than 6 months in advance) that she wanted me to make her an apron for her birthday. The other sisters have already been outfitted in aprons, so hers was LONG overdue. I used the criss cross apron pattern again and she seems to be happy with it. We also did a lot of girly fun things for her birthday - like pedicures, face masks, lots of pinning and style quizzes. It was a fun weekend!
