a little apron

I know it's been forever (a whole month) since I last posted. I hate people like me, who never keep their blog updated. Life has been crazy. We're waiting to move, expecting another baby, I'm taking classes and the hubs is finishing up medical school. I'm hoping life will slow down in the next few months and I will have a lot more time to devote to my little blog. Not to mention, I'll be in  a new place, with a new slate to decorate! 

My little guy loves to help me in the kitchen. So I decided to quickly make him his own little apron. It took m less than an hour. SO easy! Another plus, I already had this cute fabric that my mother-in-law gave me a while back. 

I had no pattern, but I just measured the little guys waist, around his neck (like how much the apron would need to hang) and about how long I would want it to hang on him. Then I just cut it out, looking something like this...
Next, I pined the sides and sewed it up.
I had some this ribbon stuff, that actually came from something I bought. You know when you get those gift bag things that are tied together with a ribbon (I always save those). I just cut the ribbon and sewed it on.

The last thing I wanted to do was add a pocket. It was SUPER easy. You can do it too.
The only thing maybe I would have changed was not make the top of the apron so wide, but this nicely took the place of his bib that he refuses to wear. So I think I actually do like the wide top. Oh and I would have made the ties a tad longer.
