Getting Ready for Lemonade Stand
I have been seeing such cute lemonade stands on line, that I decided the church kids should get in on the act. We have been studying "The Fruits of the Spirit" this summer, and I thought it would be cute for them to host a lemonade stand at fellowship for their last Sunday lesson on this topic. Of course, we are serving, not selling! along with chocolate chip cookies!
I made these aprons for the kids to wear. I had a bunch of leftover sheeting (from when I hosted Roman toga parties for the kids in Latin club days!) so I stitched them into serving aprons. The design was made on Cricut Design Space and cut on Cricut Iron On Light Printable Vinyl with my Explore Air. I just love how vibrant the design turned out! Of course, I wanted pink, but so many of the kids are boys this summer, so I went with blue and orange.
I wanted to make a few more aprons last minute, but I had run out of Cricut printable iron on vinyl. The Jo Ann's near me was out, but they had a different brand of inkjet printable vinyl, so I tried that. It was a total flop--it didn't iron on nearly as well as the Cricut brand. I will definitely be getting some more printable iron on from Cricut and keeping it in my stash. If I were not such a hoarder, we wouldn't have these cute aprons! And did you check the price of fabric???! $12.99 a yard???!! I am so glad I have fabric in my stash to last my old age!
Church lemonade stand is Sunday. I will post pictures--it will be trey cute!
