How to make a childs apron with fat quarters
My kids love to help me in the kitchen. Since I love to cook and bake, I have a few aprons that I like to wear and I thought it would be way fun for them to each have an apron too! We have lots of material that isn’t big enough to make large items with, but it is fun to make small projects. Fat Quarters are a great way to make things and use up all the pieces of the fabric. I decided I wanted to learn How to make a childs apron with fat quarters.
I took the pieces I needed, measured my daughter and then cut them. Once I had the pieces cut, I pined them over so I could sew them and give them each a nice finished edge look.
Once I had all the pieces cut and the edges pinned over, I was ready to start sewing it together. The straps and the pockets were first, and then the actual apron. Once all the edges were sewn, I began sewing everything together.
Once I had attached the pocket onto the top half, I pinned the top and bottom together and sewed them together along with the straps. On my next one, I will put the straps down further on the corner that pokes out just under where they are attached now. I think it will hold it together better.
Once it was all done, I took some stretch pink material I had and folded it up and sewed it across the front seam. I used a decrotive stitch so that the pattern would look cute. I think it turned out pretty good!
My daughter was thrilled to be able to help with dinner and wear her new apron! It is simple and “homemade” looking but I think it turned out pretty good. I am just getting back into sewing and made up my own design. Overall it probably took about an hour.
