Sewing something fun and fast

Every year, I invite my 3 youngest granddaughters over to make decorated sugar cookies.  When the two older ones were about 5, I made them both aprons.  This year, the youngest one turned 5, so I decided that she needed one too!

Sewing a child's apron is something fun and fast to do ..... and it uses up some of the cotton fabric in your stash.

Arielle came over for an afternoon and I had her pick out that materials that she liked.  Watching and helping a small child pick out fabric is pretty fun, and it is also interesting to see them take their first step in designing their own original piece.  Personally, I like funky and bright colors, so guess which fabrics I steer them towards?  You guessed it, bright, funky, and usually something lime green!

The pattern I used is from Cabbage Rose and is called, "Little Chore Girl".  Here's the picture of the pattern front.  It makes up into a super cute apron.  The two I made a few years back still fit the older girls who are now 9 and 11.



And here is the finished apron:


And the happy smile on the day she got her very own apron:



I hope you like it and can start the sewing and designing bug for your granddaughters (grandsons too!).
