    Here are a couple of aprons I made for DIL and her mom and I gave them to them on Thanksgiving as a thank you for hosting our family's Thanksgiving. They both loved them.

    The front square is 23", the backing is 25-1/4". The bottom trim, which is the same color as the backing is (2) @2-1/2" X 26". The waist ties are (2) @ 3" x WOF. They really were very easy to make. The pattern is called "Four Corners Apron" by Vanilla House Designs. Let me know if you have any more questions.

    Top is folded down about 4-1/2". I put the ties approx. 4" up from the corners after the contrast border was put on. Hope this helps.

    tellabella, because you have the bottom trim that goes on the front piece.

    How large a square do you think you would need to make a childs apron? I would like to make matching aprons for my GD and DIL. I think they would like that.

    Can you make these out of that vinyl stuff? I would like to make something like this for my daughters pre school class.
