Emma's Apron

 My 9 r. old granddaughter, Emma, made an apron.





























Emma & I love to sew, and when we get to spend the day together, that's what we do.  She also likes to cook and didn't have her own apron, so she decided to make one. She looked through my stash and picked a "tie-dye" fabric and a solid yellow for accent.  These are both quilting type cottons.    Since I already have Butterick pattern 5426, that's what we used.  We made a combination of views B & C.  And because it's sized for adults, I removed a little here and there to make it fit Emma.





I had to help her with some of the sewing, but she did most of it.  I think it turned out pretty cute!  Most importantly, she likes it.

  1. You can tell Emma is just so proud of her sewing achievement with this apron, and equally as proud to have spent the day sewing with her Grandma...treasured memories!

  3. I have all the little aprons that my grandmother made for me. They are so tiny and sweet. They still hang in my kitchen. Such sweet memories. Your granddaughters are both so precious.

  4. I'm so happy Emma likes to sew with me. I also have a 4 yr old DGD & hoping she'll like to sew with me too.

  5. What a glorious apron! That would even tempt ME into the kitchen. How clever your granddaughter must be to sew a garment like that for herself.
