My youngest loves to help out in the kitchen. It’s one of my favorite bonding activities with him. Since he’s 5, baking and cooking can be extremely messy. For Day 2 of Handmade Gifts For Boys, I’m bringing you a free children’s apron pattern and tutorial.
This simple children’s apron pattern is super easy, and goes together in less than 30 minutes for a fun, and personalized way to cover up for family baking time.
Here’s how to make one for your little munchkin.
– Mini-me Apron Pattern
– 1 yard of woven fabric
– 3 yards single fold bias tape
Place apron pieces right sides together, pin, and sew around the outside edge, beginning at the top and leaving a 5 inch opening for turning. Use a 1/2 inch seam allowance.
Fold the bottom and top edges of the pocket piece and press 1/2 inch under. Topstitch the top.
Fold the sides under 1/2 inch and press.
Find the exact middle of the front apron piece, mark.
Line up the exact middle of the pocket piece with the middle of the apron piece. Pin in place and sew around three sides of the pocket piece leaving the top open. Sew a line down the middle of the pocket piece to create two smaller pockets.
Cut the bias tape in half. Pin the middle of each piece to the middle of the arm scythe. Pin in place.
Sew from the top of each bias tape piece to the bottom, closing the folded edge and attaching each piece to the apron.
Now that you’ve sewn your wee one their own apron, it’s time to bake!
