Today I have a fun sewing project to share with you, this Child’;s Apron pattern. It’;s pretty simple to stitch up and would make a great gift for your favorite kid! If you like this project then you may also like the Ruby Lou Bag sewing pattern.

I adore making things for kids. I think that children’;s sewing projects must be some of my favorite sewing projects. When my girls were small I stitched up Easter dresses and skirt and aprons like it were going out of style.

Now that my girls are older, I don’;t make them Easter dresses anymore. Although, I did just make my daughter a summer dress to take with her on her internship this month. I have a tendency to jump at the chance to stitch something up for a little one.

When I was asked to create a sewing project for Minki Kim’;s new fabric line Serendipity I knew right away that I’;d love to make something. Her line is full of gorgeous illustrations and sweet colorspillow shams floral, that are perfect for little kids projects.

I debated for a while about what to make and finally decided on a Child’;s Apron. I also think that the fabric would be adorable to use for my Ruby Lou Bag sewing pattern. There are lots of cute illustrations to fussy cut for the pocket of the bag.

This apron is sized for a small child, probably about 5 years old. Since it’;s an apron sewing pattern it’;s pretty forgiving as far as sizing goes.

Aprons are pretty forgiving as far as sizing goes. The one in the photo that I wrote the original tutorial for is a size 4-7.

If you’;d like to make an apron that is kids size 8-12, I’;ve listed those measurements separately BELOW the cutting directions.

If you’;re looking for an Adult sized apron then I recommend this Apron Tutorial instead- it’;s made from Halloween fabric but that’;s easy to change.

Turn the pocket right side out.

Fold one of the 3″; x 18″; (or the 3″; x 24″; pieces if making the size 8-12 apron) pieces of fabric in half lengthwise.

Stitch along the outside edge using a 1/4″; seam allowance. Leave one end of the strap open and miter the end of the other side of the strap. Turn the strap right side out. For this step, I find it helpful to use a turning tool (linked above).

Make sure the pocket piece is in the center of the apron top piece. Stitch around the edge of the pocket making sure to back stitch at the top and the bottom of the pocket.

Pin the two shoulder straps to the top of the apron top piece, 1/2″; in from the edge. Stitch in place.

Pin the other apron top piece to the sewn apron top piece, right sides facing. Stitch around the top and two sides with a 1/2″; seam allowance making sure not to catch the straps as you sew.

Turn right side out and press.

Round the bottom two corners of the 14″; x 24″; apron skirt piece (if you are making the larger apron you will use your 17″; x 29″; apron skirt piece).

Stitch a piece of rick rack to the outsideedge of the right side of the apron skirt piece. The rick rack will be on top of the edge of the skirt and you will stitch right down the middle of the rick rack.

Turn the rick rack to the wrong side of the fabric and press.

Top stitch the right side of the fabric.

Find the center of one of your sewnlong apron strap pieces.

Find the center of your apron skirt piece.

Run two lines of gathering threads (set your machine stitch length to a 6) along the top of the apron skirt piece.

I was in dire need of a compact backpack to carry my books and other necessities to college. So with some research and inspiration from the internet I decided to create one on my own.

Japanese Interior design focuses on simplicity, high-contrast natural colours and balance. The Japanese philosophy of Ying and Yang promotes the idea of how important balance is for all areas of their lives. Try to achieve a good balance between the colours, objects and textures in the room.

I loved the Felt Christmas Tree Pillow I sewed last year for BERNINA and thought it would be fun to make a companion pillow. So I’ve designed a Felt Holly Berry Pillow to share with you. With felted wool pom poms again. I can’t get enough of those pom poms! I love the handmade look accomplished with the magic #6 triple stitch on the BERNINA 580 and a bit of hand sewing on the pom poms. You can easily make this pillow in the afternoon and have a cute holiday touch for your couch or a great handmade gift to share.
