This little miss is not yet 4, but she LOVES to cook with momma, I have had to purchase her some kitchen stuff in her size because she insists on being part of everything in the kitchen. I needed a cute apron for her and I ran across this linen hand towel at a home goods store for about $4.00 and immediately saw it as a sweet girly apron. Even if this is your very first sewing project ever, this will be a piece of cake. All you need to do is make 2 cuts and minimal sewing.
Children's Dish Towel Apron Tutorial
- A hand towel- approximately 12″ x 18″
- A ruler
- Sewing machine (but you can hand sew as well if you prefer)
This is the towel I started with, luckily it already had a ruffle across the bottom. If you find one that doesn't and you want to add a frilly touch, you can purchase a length of ruffle at the fabric store and sew across the bottom.
To make an apron shape instead of just leaving as a rectangle I measured down each side 4″ and in from the edge 2″
Fold and pin the cut edges over 1/4″, sew from edge to edge, reversing at the start and end to make a secure seam.
Sew your ribbon across the middle.
Sew neck ties 1/2″ down and 1″ in from edge. I sewed across and back about 4 times to make sure it was secure
How cute is this?
