Kids love working in the kitchen with their parents and friends. Nurture creativity and make these occasions even more special with a handmade charming kitchen cafe apron. Our quick project incorporates twill tape to provide a slot for a large tasting spoon, as well as buttons to hang a tea towel (sewn with buttonhole) and a *potholder sized appropriately for petite hands.
This quick cafe apron is well-suited and sized for 3-6 year olds. It's easily modified by slightly adjusting the apron panel and lengthening the waist trim and ties to fit your own child. You might consider personalizing a freezer stenciled version on a solid linen or denim for a young man or use a favorite worn t-shirt and take an Alabama Chanin approach.
* always supervise your child around the kitchen and especially around hot items
An inspiring Grandmother and an ever supportive mother kept my hands occupied with pencils, paints and other crafty bits at an early age. These days, with two girls of my own, I find sewing for them completely irresistible. So I owe my reignited obsession to them. Email: laura[at]charmstitch[dot]com.
