Easy Toddler Apron - Great for Little Chefs

Hi everyone! It's Mona here! I want to share with you a fun little apron that I made this week.

I recently had someone ask me if I could make a toddler apron. I'm willing to try just about any crafty thing at least once, so I told them yes!

When presented with something that I haven't done previously, I usually do one of two things (or a combination of them) - I search the internet for patterns or I design my own thing. This time, I searched the internet, found a pattern on the Craftsy site that I liked, and then adapted it to fit my comfort zone.

This child's apron pattern is free on their blog. I liked that it was very simple - didn't have a lot of ruffles or frilly stuff.  I also liked that you only need about 2 fat quarters of fabric for the body of the apron. (I don't know about you, but I have that in my stash! If not - you can check out the sale on Craftsy here [affiliate link]) And, I used a couple of jelly roll strips for the straps.

I didn't want to do their neck and waist straps, though, so I did something different. Basically, I made 4 18" pieces of fabric into the straps (using their method for neck and waist straps). This way the adult working with them will be able to tie them. (This was the request from the person who asked for the apron.)
Also - I didn't print the pattern. I chose two pieces of fabric that would complement each other, folded them, then cut 2 rectangles 7 1/2" x 18" (making sure to keep one of the 18" sides on the fold). I then free-handed the curve. To make sure that my pieces aligned well for sewing later, I cut them all at once. If you aren't comfortable doing this, then make sure you print the pattern and use their curve!

So, what do you think? Is this something you'd like to try? If so - let me see a picture when you're done!

Until next time - blessings & peace - and happy crafting!
