This time of the year I find a lot of fun sewing projects to do. This fun little Toddler/Child sized apron is no exception to that fun. It is so easy to do, so quick, and your kiddos will LOVE it!! Best of all, you can make it reversible too!
All that you need to make your own apron is the following:
2 fat quarters
some scraps for optional applique
1 pkg double fold bias tape
and these TWO pages of pattern:
Just right click, save it to your computer and print it out on 8.5×11″ paper. match up where it tells you to, and use it as your pattern guide.
Remember to use a 1/4″ seam allowance when sewing all seams.
Start by folding each fat quarter in half length-wise.
Line up your fabric with your pattern and cut 1 of each prints of fabric.
You can now add whatever type of applique you would like (if desired). I used a gingerbread man and a peppermint swirl for mine. This is totally optional.
Now cut your bias tape into 4 different 14″ strips. Top stitch down the edge of each strip to close it up. I left the edges of mine raw. You can fold yours to finish it up if you would like.
Lay out one of your apron fabrics right side up. Place one string on each of the 4 corners marked in pattern, creating neck ties and waist ties. Lay remaining apron pattern on top of this right side down. Pin well around entire apron, making sure to pin the apron strings.
sew around all sides and top of apron, using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Leave the bottom open.
Turn fabrics right side out, and press well. Top stitch around sides and top of apron. Turn the bottom of your apron up twice, using a 1/4″ hem gauge to mark it. Sew across with a top stitch to finish it up.
And there you have it!
