Summer Sewing--Cute and Easy Apron For Kids

We had so much fun making aprons! 

Rose was absolutely enamoured with the sewing machine and, by the end, able to sew with just a little assistance.  I bought my sewing machine when I was in 8th grade with money from my paper route--talk about getting my moneys-worth!

Patrick was happy to show off his skills.

I found such a cute and easy pattern on this website--reversible and adorable! 

We used flannel simply because it was what I had on hand, but any cotton fabric will do.  The only thing I had to buy was a pair of D-rings for each apron neckband. 

Rose wanted hers to be the same on both sides:

Patrick chose monkeys for one side:

Sharks on the other:

Vu went for puppies and monkeys:

I made the pattern 2" longer for Rose and Patrick, and would make the neck strap 2" shorter in the future. 

It's a quick and easy pattern and would make a really cute gift. 

I am so glad my mother and grandmother taught me to sew.  It's a great life skill and one I've enjoyed passing down to my own children.  If you don't know how to sew, come on over and join the party!   
Happy Sewing!
