DIY Child’s Apron

I have wanted to make Buddy an apron for his play kitchen for a while now, and I finally got around to it this weekend. When I was cleaning out his closet last week, I found a bundle of plaid sheets that I had used to make his bedroom curtains a few years back. They are nice blue plaid and I thought the fabric would make a very cute boy apron.

I used this great free pattern from Meg at Sew Liberated. I also added a big divided pocket for his kitchen utensils or notepad for when we play restaurant. 

It was quick and easy to make. And the best part, is that she designed it for a 3-6 year old to be able to put on and take off easily. There are no ties. Instead it has an elastic neck band and the belt closes with velcro. That is why it is called a Montessori Apron, because Montessori is all about encouraging independence.

It’s the new perfect addition to our dress up area!

Unlike the Gadget Bandolier I made for his birthday, Buddy loves his apron!

  1. Awesome apron! I love the do-it-myself aspect of this pattern. I’ve been looking for a mommy and me apron set and I’m finding that a good one is elusive.
