My little lady had a couple little friends having birthdays recently. Since she is really into "cooking" these days, I thought aprons would be a fun gift for the little friends. Aprons are super easy to make without a pattern. These measurements will make an apron that will fit about a 2 to 5yr old.
Essentially, you are making a 7 inch x 7 inch square with a 7 inch line on either side. Find the center of the square at the waist. Measure 10 1/2 inches in an arc from one side of the waist to the other. This will give you a perfect half circle for the skirt part of the apron.
The straps are 15 inches long each. The ruffle around the bottom of the orange one is about 40 inches long.
I like to double layer them so there is no exposed seams. Sew the pocket on the front, and pin a ruffle and straps raw edges lined up.
Pin the other layer on top, making sure all the straps are out of the seam area. Sew around the edge leaving a space to turn right side out.
I then top stitch around the whole thing to make it look neat and tidy.
The second one I did, I used ribbon instead of fabric to make the straps and embellish the skirt. It was a LOT faster that way and I think is just as cute.
