Easiest Apron .. EVER!

Ok.. seriously the title should say it all.. however.. it really should have been Easiest CUTEST apron EVER!   Here it is!
Pin It
 Seriously cute, right?
And guess what .. it was soo simple that even I was able to make it.. which is really saying ALOT given my limited sewing skills.
But here's how I did it! 
First I went to visit my BFF Joanne.. and purchased this sweet piece of scrap fabric from the leftover bin for a whopping $1.75!
Then  I pinned it to fit my lovely girl.
Next I created my ties, which I started by cutting two long pieces of yellow gingham fabric.
First I folded in one side to the middle and ironed it.
(p.s. My Mom is jumping for joy right now that I actually ironed something! he he he)
Next I folded the second side in to match the first side and ironed again.
Then I folded the outside edge inside and ironed again.
Last I folded the top corners into each other.. and then over to make a triangle edge.
Then I sewed!
Then I pinned and sewed the side seams into place with the ties wrapped around the inside of the seam and sewed it.
 And last I added this seriously cute gingham pocket with a scrappy fabric flower.  
Then here it is all together!
Viola.. a happy girl and a Sweet apron!
Please be advised that while there was NO actual baking going on in these pictures..
you can bet this girl is going to HOLD ME to some
serious baking
in the VERY near future in exchange for aforementioned modeling shoot!
And p.s. The oven mitts were her idea! 
Isn't she just the cutest?
I am sharing with these fun parties!

  1. Very cute apron! I never would have thought to use the pre smocked material to make an apron. Brilliant!

  2. You had me fooled. The light on in the oven totally had me believing you did have some serious baking going on :). The apron and your daughter, both adorable.

    *And, until I started crafting I, too, never used my iron :)
