I’m glad you liked yesterday’s Father’s Day Utility Apron tutorial! Today’s variation: Little Artist Apron for kids!
My kids love anything that makes them feel like a “real” artist. I love anything that keeps paint and markers off of their “real” clothes. :)
You can make one for your budding Picasso by using my Apron from Tote tutorial and a smaller tote, like this orange one that measured about 14″ wide x 12″ tall. Be sure to try the apron on your child as you go to determine length, pocket placement, etc.
The tote handles were way too long to be used as a neck strap. For better fit and safety reasons, I added a Velcro closure. Just cut the handle strap at the top edge of the tote/apron and stitch a square of Velcro. Stitch the opposite strip on the end of the strap.
Perfecto! That was fast, easy and fun. Better yet, I saved a little Monet by making it myself! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
I have yet another idea for repurposing leftover canvas totes…so stay tuned!
