Each apron is double layered and sewn from two fat quarters and I used scraps for some of the pockets. You can use the fat quarters either way directionally to produce different sizes although you do need to consider how the print works. I was sewing for children from around 18 months- 4 years so I wanted a range of lengths.
Initially I followed this clever tutorial which produces cute curved pockets for a 'no waste' method, alongside this hand drawn infographic but after I'd sewn a few I went free style!
I turned to my stash of various ribbons and tape for the neck straps and ties and I dug into my dressmaking remnants so many aprons were backed with chambray.
I also stitched up a special extra trimmed version as a Christmas gift (getting ready early). This would make a great gift for a child age 2-6 years, especially accompanied with a plastic mixing bowl and spoon and maybe an easy recipe too.
I loved sewing these and I've been seeing them in use this week with my little singing bakers, adorable!
