My daughter loves to help me cook! Sometimes she is a really good helper and other times she is more in the way than anything. I like to let her help though. I want her to enjoy cooking and being int he kitchen like I do. Actually my youngest son loves to help out in the kitchen as well and I will be making him an apron, too, just as soon as I find some more boyish stuff to make it with. One thing they both love is to wear one of my aprons. I figured I might as well make them their own!
This apron took me all of 15 minutes to make. All you need is a hot pad, a tea towel, and some ribbon. Cut the tea towel in half and sew it to the bottom of the hot pad. Measure out some ribbon that will be long enough to wrap around and tie the apron on the back. Sew this right along where the tea towel and hot pad meet. Next, measure out some ribbon that will be long enough to go around their neck and slip on and off fairly easily. Sew this to the top of each side of the hot pad. Viola! A sweet little apron!
