My friend, Emily, requested an apron after making one as a gift for a recent bride. After looking at some patterns and books, she decided on McCall's Easy stitch 'n save M5358. She selected fabric from my stash. I would have never thought to make the bands and ties out of the contrasting fabric - it turned out "sew cute!" The green vintage fabric was leftovers I inherited from my husband's grandmother's estate. This was a great pattern for trying out my new ruffler foot.
My daughter has an apron for our play kitchen but my son has been playing with it more than she has, as of recent. I thought he needed a little chef's/BBQ apron, as well. He looks like he's working at a little restaurant in the photo. When we put it on him, my husband said it's time for him to help out with the grilling! When sewing this apron, I traced my daughter's as a pattern, but any basic apron pattern could be sized down, or I have seen child apron patterns sometimes included with the adult pattern.
