Your "Budding Builder" will love wearing this handy dandy utility apron when he/she is working on a building project. The pockets and tool loops provide lots of convenient places to keep tools, pencils, and even a tiny calculator close at hand. This versatile little apron can also serve as a gardener's apron, a painter's apron, a craft apron, etc. Would your doll like to work in a hardware store, department store, bakery, or restaurant? Be creative and have fun making up a new store name. Then use fabric markers or embroidery to add the name to your doll's apron.
