    apron for little girls - anyone make those?

    My sis asked me to make aprons for her 2 little grand daughters I am more than happy to do that, but I have never made an apron before. I found some pictures and instructions on the internet for an apron her and I liked.

    Now that I have it almost completed, I am wondering if this is "too round" ? I can find pictures of aprons like this on a person or on a mannequin, but none laid flat like this. Except for the site that I was going off of. In thos instructions she just said "make a curve that you like"..

    What do you guys think?

    It looks adorable. As long as it stays up and ties onto their body I think it will be fine. My oldest DD made little aprons for her twin youngest sisters. The girls love their aprons as I think these little girls will. Great job!

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    It really doesn't matter what the apron looks like lying flat. When it goes around a body, it covers what it underneath. That is what counts. I really like the apron you've created. It is definitely fun, and it will serve its purpose very nicely.
    Sometimes I try to act "normal," but it gets boring so I just go back to being myself.

    Looks great for a little girl. She will love it as it was special made for her.

    I love it! It is just adorable. I don't think it is too round at all. Perfect!

    Adorable little apron. But do you think those ties are long enough? I would think they would need to be at least twice as long, maybe three times to be able to tie it in the back. Do some testing on a little girl!

    I make aprons for little ones that are reversible. These are simple and kids love them. Here's a worn out one but you get the idea.Name:  image.jpg

    It's a great little girl's apron. I've made several, but they were just miniature adult BBQ type aprons, but I like the idea of rounding it off and adding the ruffle. My DGD likes the apron I made for her one Christmas.
