I made this apron for Elle for her birthday. I still haven't decided on what kitchen to get or make for her so I thought I'd at least start with some of the kitchen accessories. I have an apron that is similar in fabric color and design so I thought it would be fun to make her a smaller version. I based the apron from a pattern found here, but resized and made some design adjustments like adding the black ruffle to the pocket and bottom of the apron. To make the pattern at actual size, I used some wrapping paper. It worked great...definitely a trick I'll continue to use. The apron was really easy and fast to make especially considering I'm on the beginner side of sewing. It only took about an hour and a half, and I started and finished it the morning of her "tiny two" party.
