I’ve been out of the sewing room for too long… Today I spent the day cleaning my office/sewing space and now can’t wait to get started on my next project using this sweet and summery fabric line called Sunnyside Ave. designed by Amy Smart (@diaryofaquilter ) for Riley Blake! #sewing #fabric #rileyblake #isew #sewingblogger #sewingproject #isew #sewersgonnasew
I made a toddler/child size apron pattern about 5 years ago, and it’s been on my list of things to redo the kid’s apron pattern to include a tween and an adult-sized free apron pattern for my pattern collection.
Yes, I said 5 years on my to-do list… I am a self-admitted queen of procrastination!
Free Apron Pattern for Children, Tweens and Women
But look how cute my apron turned out!!! I am so happy about it and have been using it all the time.
And since I was already at it, I graded the pattern for an in-between “tween” size: It fits my lil tween perfectly! (The tween size will fit a kid’s size 8 to 14 – after that, you will want to size up to the adult size.)
Just imagine all the fun summertime baking you and your mini-me can do in your matching aprons! I love it!
Free Kids Apron Pattern:
The toddler version (modeled here) looks so tiny compared to the other two, but it will fit about a size 2 to size 7 child.
The tween apron will fit an average size 8 to 14 year old.
This Apron Pattern is soo Easy to Make!
I love how the aprons turned out.
They are super easy to make, basically two little pieces of fabric wrapped in bias tape.
You can use store-bought bias tape, which will make the project even easier and will shave off a significant amount of time. But if you have a special fabric, you may want to add that custom touch by making your own bias tape. (Which is what I did.)
I used my Simplicity Bias Tape Maker maker to help me iron the bias tape. I am so glad I bought this bias tape maker when I did because the machine is now discontinued! Why in the world simplicity decided to discontinue it is beyond me! It really is so handy. How many of you have one of these little machines?
Make Sure to Use Bias Tape on your Apron!
Anyway, it’s been a while since I made bias tape and I probably should have reviewed my instructions before jumping in, because I inadvertently cut some of the tape not on the bias. It’s not that big of a deal since its fine for the top, bottom, and sides to not be on the bias, but I do recommend to at least using bias tape on the curved sections.
I was out of the green plaid fabric, so I went ahead and used the wrongly cut tape on the smallest size, and you can see in the photo below, how the curved section does not lie as nicely as the aprons using bias tape cut on the bias.
Apron Pattern Variations:
- It’s not in this free apron pattern, but I think a cute option would be to curve the bottom edges and add a coordinating ruffle all the way around the bottom and sides of the apron. If I ever make another one, I might have to try it.
- I’ve also seen Kangaroo pockets instead of the rectangle pocket.
- You could also cut off the top half and make a half apron.
