This was originally posted in October 2010, but since I’m getting ready to make one of the super-easy aprons for Reagan, I thought I’d share it again.
I have been wanting to sew ever since I can remember. Lately, I’ve been trying to get past the “wanting” to get to the “doing,” but because Reagan still isn’t so fabulous for others when I leave her, taking classes just isn’t a great option for me at this point. My plan of action: hunt through Blogland for super easy sewing tutorials so I can teach myself.
My son absolutely loves to help with me with anything and everything in the kitchen so when I happened upon this (Michael Miller Apron Tutorial), I knew I had found my perfect match. The tutorial actually shows you how to create a pocket on the front of the apron which is a fairly neat feature. Knowing my cutie-patootie though, I could just imagine all kinds of things he’d smash and/or hide in there. So, no pocket on my version.
This is the robots and rockets side.
This is the rockets only side.
Because my son is only two and I wanted to make sure that this homemade goodness lasted many years, I purposely made the straps longer and when he’s wearing it, I just wrap the excess length around and tie it in a loose knot. In case you might be wondering, I used David Walker’s Robots fabric which I found a smokin’ deal on at Fabritopia.
We are now ready to cook (or let’s be real…bake) away!
