Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Basic sewing skills

Pattern Description:

You can whip up this cute Fat Quarter Quickie apron for your favorite little helper or a budding artist in an hour or two. It's perfect for the kitchen or as an arts and crafts coverup. You'll need only five coordinating fat quarters and there will be leftovers of some of these to put back into your stash. It's great for boys, too, when done in masculine prints!

Consider making this a collaborative project by having the child choose their favorite fat quarters from your stash, or take them shopping with you and let them choose from the store's selection.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 17" wide x 20" or 21" long; fits most 4-7-year-old children.


  • Basic sewing tools
  • Five coordinating fat quarters or equivalent scraps and pre-cuts
