I bought the fabric over a year ago with plans of making aprons for Christmas 07, but it never happened. Last year the kids loved to cook with me in the kitchen. I knew aprons were a must. I started making them in November 08, but time just escaped me and I found myself swearing at my sewing machine on Christmas Eve :) Ho Ho Ho.
They were easier to make than I thought. Amanda Jean was a big inspiration to me. She sews a lot and always offers sewing tips on her blog. I have discovered, thanks to her, that the iron is your best friend when sewing. If you always press your fabrics and seams, it makes sewing much easier.
Crate & Barrel had the cutest kid's spatulas this year, so I bought those for the kids. Perfect for the pockets. As you can see from the photos that the aprons actually fit the kids and I think they turned out pretty cute. We'll be road testing them by making some chocolate chip cookies. Yummy!
