I began by scanning Pinterest for patterns for kids, but nothing stuck out to me. Then, I looked at one of my aprons that my DIL Jessica had made me for Christmas a few years ago. Mine is made from about a yard of fabric on each side (it is totally reversible), it has a pocket on each side and it is super cute! I figured that I could use that as my starting point and just reduce the size for my grandchildren. They came out adorable if I say so myself. I have three of them finished with just 2 to go for my older girls. Those may take a little more than 1/4 yard fats if I want them to be able to wear them for any amount of time. So, for now I'm going to show you how I've done the 1/4 fat aprons. Click on the photos for instructions:
Let me know if anyone gives this project a try. Oh, and here are the buttons for the pocket patterns. You can adjust the sizes to how big of small you wan them to be.
