Playroom: Apron to Match

050b(No Show-Off this week – it’s the Playroom Craft Parade and I am headed out of town while that is rolling on auto-pilot.  I’m sure there were lots of fabulous links – I’ll do a shout-out to a few from this week on next Take-A-Look Tuesday!)

Most people might think it’s overkill, but if you’re reading craft blogs you’re probably on my side – I had to make an apron to match the playroom decor.  I had extra fabric, so why not!  I know we have several aprons (see HERE), but they’re kind of girly so what if a boy wants to cook at the play kitchen – then we need a gender-neutral apron.  A quick how to make a plain child apron:
I had an apron from something so I just traced the shape (looking at the picture now I guess I should have folded it in half to check my symatry – looks a little off – oh well) – if you don’t have an apron to trace, just make up the shape.  Then I just serged the edges.  I didn’t realize I had black thread until I started sewing – oh well.  If you don’t have a serger, you can hem all the edges.  But let me tell you, this was so fast to just serge and go.  I cut a pocket, serged its edges, and sewed it on as well.
Then I used ribbon for the ties.  I just attached the waist ties by sewing them on.  With the neck loop I sewed one end and used velcro for the other end.
That’s it.  I don’t think an apron can get any easier than this one.  Here’s a couple of more models for you:
