Rainbow Batik Toddler Craft Apron - Free Pattern!

This is a very simple apron to stitch up. I would say it fits kids from about 3 to 5 years old. If you make your own bias tape I like to first sew it onto the backside then fold over to the front and zig zag down. This prevents the need to made the final stitching look perfect. I used gold metallic thread from Sajou (in stock). The apron without self fabric bias requires only 5/8 a yard. I recommend a yard if you want to make bias strips in the same fabric.

Cut one body piece on the fold. Required lengths for double fold bias strips are as follows: 2 x 45" for the neck/waist ties. 6" across the top and 40" for the bottom curved edge. For the bottom edge I have given you a generous length so you can get the around the curve, I recommend as you stitch when you get close to the curve clip the bias tape a couple of times - this will help you if using a tight fabric.

The pocket is 9" by 5". Of course customize and make it yours! This is a perfect gift.
