A Simple Apron
One of the Christmas presents I made for Arden was a simple apron to wear when she helps me in the kitchen, or when she gets creative in her play kitchen.
I used more of my deep discount IKEA fabric (are you getting tired of seeing projects made out of this yet?), and made orange bias tape from denim leftover from one of my Project Toddler Runway designs. Arden is already enjoying it and playing in her little kitchen. I have pictures of her opening it on Christmas morning that I don't want to share here because she had stripped down to panties and socks earlier in the morning because she wanted to wear some new holiday socks and was wearing footie pajamas. All our Christmas morning pictures are of a mostly naked two-year-old and a sleeping two-month-old. Hilarious!
This was super quick and easy - I think making the bias tape took more time than cutting and sewing the apron! I made it a little big so it will grow with her, and the neck strap adjusts with two d-rings. I cut two, so I'm going to whip up the other one to sell in my Etsy shop Jennuine Design.
