I wasn't kidding when I said back in my first post about child aprons that they were going to be our go-to birthday gifts for girls this year. My daughter, her 2nd cousin, and sweet little L from our church all had birthdays in January.
Here's what they all received.
|This one is my little P's. She turned 3, and I still hadn't made one for her.|
|I used the same tutorial from Craftiness Is Not Optional for the apron. I could probably do it without the tutorial at the point, but why?|
|I received the Simplicity Bias Tape Maker this past Christmas from my MIL, and this was the first project I needed it for. I actually said, "Wow," aloud (to myself) watching this machine in motion. It's AWESOME, and I've used it a few times since. So glad to have it.|
|I liked the little details in this fabric. So Spring, which Texas has been experiencing since the New Year, btw.|
|The main fabric is from Joann, the brown bias tape is simply broadcloth, and the pocket and 2nd bias tape color is Michael Miller's Honey Bee Swirl in Yellow. (That's still leftover from this bridal shower and these dresses. Think I bought too much?)|
|I used the same tutorial from Made by Rae for the pleated pocket. Quite simple.|
|And here it is on a full-fledged 3-year old! The sash wraps around to the front, which she likes because that's how I do it (or did it before I was pregnant.)|
|Just for reference, P is 36" tall and 27 lbs. I think she'll get about 2 or 3 years about of this apron.|
