Lil chef

Okay, last apron post of the week, I promise.
I made an apron for Luke using this free pattern from the Sew Liberated blog. It's a great pattern--very straightforward. I'm proud of this apron. It's one of my favorite sewing projects so far. It cost me less than $4, and it came out looking pretty professional.

Luke, on the other hand, was less than enthused. I'm hoping he learns to love it. It's made for a 3 to 6 year old, so he has a little growing to do before it will really fit.




I made the lining out of a different fabric. I was thinking that it would be reversible, but that was before I thought through the logistics of the Velcro. So it just has a cute lining.


The pattern has great toddler-appropriate details, like a Velcro closure for the waistband...

...and elastic in the neck strap, which makes it easier to get over the head.

Or that's the idea, anyway.

Katie, that apron is so cute. Now that I work at the farmers market, i meet many ladies who are into knitting, crocheting, and canning etc. Just last week I was bragging about you, my granddaughter, who works, has a small child and is into all those womanly projects. You didn't get it from me, that's for sure. I'm proud of you. Grandma
