Reversible Child's Apron

I don't like to brag...ok, maybe I do...but my pattern for a reversible child's apron that posted at the Moda Bake Shop on Sunday is Amazing!  I came up with it a few years ago when I wanted to make an apron for my daughter, but didn't want to use binding or turn over edges.  

When I started to cut the apron out I realized that a fat quarter of fabric was just about the right size.  That is right, 3 fat quarters = a reversible child's apron with virtually no waste!  Love! 

One fat quarter for the front, one for the back and one for the ties and pockets.  You know you want to make one.  :)

If we had boys and girls in our house I would totally make one with "boy" fabric on one side and "girl" fabric on the other, but no such luck.  Only girls here, so it was flowery all the way.  :)  Check it out and let me know what you think.


  1. I love this apron! What a great gift for a little girl. I just pinned your tutorial and plan on making several of these ... maybe even in a "big girl" size.

    And also must add ... your model is absolutely adorable :)

  2. Fantastic! I am adding this to my summer sew list for my soon to be 3 year old kitchen helper.

  3. That apron is incredibly cute- - and easy! I have several little male chef grandchildren who could use an apron like this. Thanks so much!


  4. Great tutorial! I just make two for my girls using your plans and they turned out great! So easy to make!
    Just added a post to my blog about this great Child's Apron! And now I'm off you check out more of your projects. Thanks for sharing all your work with us!
