Kid Apron

I made this little apron for my next door neighbor's five-year-old daughter.  I used Simplicity 4692, which does not seem to be in print anymore.  Here's a picture of the pattern cover:
Why do pattern companies always pick the homeliest of fabrics for their examples?  Anyway, I did the child-size pattern for View A (the first one).  It was easy, as aprons usually are.

I had a yard of the main fabric, which I purchased at Crafty Planet's booth at last year's No Coast Craft-o-rama.  The contrasting blue fabric was a thrift find.  I used snaps instead of the recommended velcro, which was probably a bad idea, but still a cuter one.  The peach bias tape is from my mom.  I think she sent me like 30 packages of skinny and fat bias tape in this color.  It's not a perfect match to the orange in the main fabric, but I think it works just fine.  And then I whipped up that little pot holder on a whim.

The recipient seemed to like it.  She put it on and announced that it was the perfect item to help her sell her flowers.

  1. Fabulous....You did an excellent job. Glad you finally found a use for that seam binding. Little Gaia loves her play kitchen, hint hint.
