Toddler Jean Apron with Ruffles


Photobucket


My daughter loves to work in the kitchen (real and pretend :) )
I have been wanting to make her an apron for a while - and today I finally sat down to do it....

You can see the other aprons I have made here and here.  They were larger - made for teens and adults - but also made from upcycled jeans and colorful fabric. 
This one for my 4 year old daughter was made much smaller.

I pieced together a couple bits of jeans, sewing a colorful piece of fabric in the middle.

I also had a toddler apron that I used as a guide - but you could just eyeball it.  The final dimensions were 17" tall and 15" wide a the bottom, 7" wide at the top.

I let my daughter pick out some fabric colors that she liked from my stash, and made some ruffles to sew onto the front...

Then, I added the fabric lining around the edges...a full tutorial can be found in this post.

I wear my aprons ALL the time, and now my daughter has a pretty, handmade apron to wear when I wear mine:) 
They are super easy - go try one!

    Hi there Lindsay!

    Say, I'm in Mérida, Venezuela (where we have no Starbucks) do you think you could send me a scanned image of the Starbucks Cardboard Sleeve opened up?

    I've looked and looked on the Internet but no luck.

    Thank you SOOOO much in advance,

  5. Sooo cute! Even cuter after I realized you let your daughter pick fabrics from your "stash" and not your "trash" -- time to update the eyeglasses prescription :)
