A little sewing!

My two girl love to craft, help me cook (heck the older one likes to do dishes!!!!! knock on wood for me for mentioning that ok?) and so I figured it might be a good idea for these two to have aprons. Now I could have bought those cheaply made plastic art smocks for 20 each or I could sew. I choose to sew. Plus they each got to pick out the fabric.

Drama Girl's

This one is Drama's. Monkey girls with makeup and shoes and a tutu. Yep that is her in a nut shell.

Buddah's

This one is Buddah's. This girl LOVES anything purple! I just had enough for the apron front.

The aprons are reversible.

bad lighting but that color is a very bright pink, cause well they are girls after all.

The neck straps are attached on one side and snap on the other. Same with the waist straps. It makes it very easy for them to put the on and take them off. I found the pattern at Sew Liberated (on the side Montessori Child's apron). The mods I made were on the straps and I made the length a little longer since it the pattern is made for up to age 6 and well Drama is 6 and Buddah is the size of a 6 year old. They fit very well and should last for a few years, well if they do not wear them out that is.

Those are adorable, and so much better than those plastic art smocks!! How great that they love to cook and craft already. :)

What a nice mommy you are to make your kids aprons with fabric that they love. My mommy used to make me and my sisters clothes, but nothing as fun and cool as these aprons. Hope you all have many happy hours crafting or doing dishes or cooking or anything else you all want to do.
