We have a shortage of small aprons at home for the frequent helpers in the kitchen. The youngest really needed an apron to cover her clothes when baking. I traced a simple pattern from dd#1's apron on to some newspaper, and then pinned and cut the fabric as usual. It's a little on the large size for our 6 year old bakerette (fits the 10 year old much better!), but I'm sure she'll grow into it. This apron was actually cut from a pillowcase in the sheet set, as you can see with all of the trim thrown in... couldn't let it go to waste now, could I?

So taken with her apron, I just couldn't resist sewing up one for myself in a different colour, because one can never have too many aprons, right? The pattern was made the same way - by tracing around my favourite kitchen apron on to newspaper and then sewing it as usual. They are super quick to whip up...under an hour, including cutting it out.

Last week I also picked up the cutest little red gingham apron on my travels....I just couldn't resist! I'm beginning to wonder if I am developing a slightly disturbing obsession with aprons...
But they just make me SO happy! Read this post to understand why I like them so much.
And with weather like this......
....who wouldn't want to be snug and cosy inside, sewing away to their heart's content?
