Katy’s Apron


Scanned ImageHello, my long-lost friends! I hope everyone is well. I miss reading your blogs and hope to catch up soon.

My friend Sewing Machine and I haven’t spent much time together this summer, but I did find a spot o’ time to make an apron for my adorable granddaughter Katy’s 2nd birthday. This fun pattern is SUPER easy to stitch up, since it uses bias tape instead of hems around all the edges. I bought this pretty pink-flowered tape for Katy’s apron at a craft show, but I now own a bias tape maker and can’t wait to try creating some myself with Beth’s tutorial at The Renegade Seamstress. Katy especially loves her name embroidered on the pocket!

Click here for the pattern from Joan Giammalva. And, if you want a fun cookbook to gift with the apron, I recommend Pretend Soup and Other Real Recipes by Mollie Katzen . . . perfect for toddlers and preschoolers.

Thank you for taking a peek! ā™„

  2. I have a readers request actually: would it be possible to design and show us how to make lavender filled moth repellents for the wardrobe? I grow lavender obsessively and then collect it when the season finishes. At the moment it’s in a jar- last year I stuffed some socks for the wardrobe. šŸ™‚ but I wonder if you have any more attractive ideas… You are always so creative… Xx

  3. I’m having nostalgic flashbacks to childhood summers with my grandma, who always made us matching aprons! šŸ™‚
