"A" is for Apron (kid size)

Sew: kid size aprons



Pink and white gingham aprons with pink trim, perfect for a cake decorating birthday party:



I made 12 aprons, one for each party guest.
The aprons make a great favor the girls can use again and again.


Thanks cousin for modeling!


She's concentrating hard on making her cake box:


And here they are with their finished cakes:


Here's how I made the aprons:

1. I used an Ikea duvet cover Barbro Ruta I found on clearance last summer:
Wash and dry your cotton fabric.


2. Use an existing apron as your pattern and cut out 12 aprons:



3. Make 48" of 1 1/4" bias cut binding for each apron:


4. Begin by sewing binding to apron top and around both sides and bottom then press:


5. Now flip apron over and press in raw edge 1/4":


6. Fold pressed edge over to create binding and pin:


7. Stitch in ditch from the front side, keep checking the back side to be sure you catch the folded edge in your stitching:


8. Then repeat the process for the ties extending your binding 15" at the top for the neck ties and 24" on the bottom for the waist ties.
