Mommy and Me Aprons are a perfect quick and easy Mother’s Day gift for your favorite Mommy and her little one! Theses aprons are super duper quick and easy.
(At Sunday Supper last week, I begged the 2 of my daughters who were there to let me take a photo of them in the apron and they said absolutely not! So this picture is more like Gigi and me aprons 🙂 )
If you’re a grandma with granddaughters, wouldn’t it be sweet to give these to your granddaughters and their moms for Mother’s Day?!
I decided on a cotton fabric because I don’t like stiff or quilted bulky aprons, but that’s just me!
Anyhoo, here is a little tutorial if you’re interested in making them…
I bought 1 1/2 yards of fabric (wash your fabric first) and used 2 old aprons (1 child apron & 1 adult apron) as patterns. Simply fold apron and fabric in half and cut around apron (on 3 sides) cutting an extra 1″ all the way around apron for a seam allowance.
Turn under a border around the apron using a double fold to hide any raw edges…Iron border.
Now make the apron ties-Cut two strips for each apron. Iron both raw edges to the middle and fold down the center and iron. Sew a seam all the way down the tie.
For the neck which is a bit wider . Use same technique as described above.
For the adult apron, I added a finish strip on the underside of the bib…cut a strip of fabric 2″ wide and the same size as the top of your apron bib. Iron outside raw edged toward the center and then place over the inside bib…
Place the neck strip between the finish strip and the apron and stitch the finish strip onto the bib-repeat on the other side of apron top.
***I also added a bit of rick-rack to the top edge, tucking it between the finish strip and the apron and stitching…this is optional***
But it adds a bit of cuteness 🙂
***I also added a little rick-rack to the front top of the bib…
Now sew all around the apron along the seam you already ironed, sewing on the apron ties at the waist of each side.
I had a little fun with the child’s apron by adding a front pocket and rick-rack around the outside of the apron.
Most of this project is cutting and ironing! It’s easy and you can do it in an hour!
I made these last week and I’ve already used them 3 times! ( I have to make 3 more little ones for when all the tiny girls are here cooking! )
If you have little ones in your life, do you or did you ever cook with them?
