Every now and again – usually during school holidays – my kids decide they want to help me in the kitchen. To keep them (relatively) clean while we cook, I created some easy aprons. They love to wear an apron like I do!
What You Need
- Fabric – about 1m depending on the size of your cherub
- Ribbon for ties
- Bias binding for the edges
What To Do
- Fold your fabric in half and draw the shape you want for the apron starting from the fold. You will really draw half the apron shape.
- Cut out your shape starting and ending at the fold. When you unfold your piece you will have your full apron.
- Finish the edges of the apron shape: I used bias binding but you could use an overlocker or serger, or simply turn under a hem and stitch.
- Add a loop of ribbon to go over the head, and two ribbon ties at the waist.
- Get cooking!
Need an apron fast? Grab a tea towel, 2 ribbons and some safety pins. Pin one piece of ribbon to the top two corners of the tea towel to create a loop around the neck. The tea towel goes on the front of your little chef. Tie the other ribbon around their waist. Ready to cook!
