my 7 year old is home educated. we do a lot of craft, home science, cooking and gardening and generally really messy stuff.
She's been getting sick of having to ask me to tie aprons, or me having to find safety pins to make my adult aprons fir her. her dad doesn't wear shirts for work either so we'd no chance of an old one.

^^ teaser photo Wink that's a felt flower, sewn over the pocket. it was an afterthought and sewing the felt onto the ticking while keeping my hand in the pocket to make sure it didn't go through both layers was nightmarish.

I was given two massive trashbags of fabric a couple of weeks ago, and in one of them was a huuuuuug quantity of heavy cotton ticking. on pinterest I found a tutorial for making a pinnafore/jumper with a crossover back and figured with a little modification, I could make one for Squiglet.

so I did. it took a couple of goes with newspaper, greaseproof baking paper and a permenant marker to get the dimentions right, but here it is.



pre flower, you can see how impressed she was. grrr.





I am thinking of undoing one shoulder and making it fasted with a button though as she's finding it hard to get it on and off which is a bit of a bottomburp.

oh, here's the blog link. I completely ignored everything apart from her picture of the pieces laid out flat. from that, using Child as a template, I was able to work out how to make the apron. oh, and rolled hems Yo *winky face*

What a great idea, and so useful for a child.  Your daughter is lovely, by the way.

The flower must have been a pain to sew but it really adds color and joy to the apron.
