Child's Strawberry and Gingham Apron

I made this apron for a little cousin of mine who is around the age of my daughter (don't you love my cardboard girl!). Her mother selected the fabric and for the most part gave me free reign to create.

Since this one was for a child, I made it a bit more cutesy, focusing on the strawberries fabric and using the black gingham for accents. I decided to add some solid red just to help break up the patterns a bit and add a pop of color to it.

The bib and skirt have ruffles around all three sides and the skirt pockets are sitting on top of red appliqued pieces to set them off some. The girl who is getting this apron should be able to wear it for a long time.   
I included a couple in progress shots as well as several finished ones. I had lots of fun making this apron because there weren't any "rules" like there are when trying to replicate icons or completing custom projects that are specifically laid out.

At first I was a little intimidated by the fabric, because it took me a while to figure out what I thought would look best with these colors and still be fun and girly/age appropriate.  All my worrying seems silly now because I'm really happy with the finished product. I just hope her Mommy likes it too!


  1. Oh, her Mommy likes it indeed! She is going to be so adorable making goodies by my side. Good call on using the solid red, as opposed to the polka dots - it would have been a little hectic. Can't wait to see the Mommy version!

  2. Great job!!! We really appreciate your aspirations and efforts to make ur dreams true. If all of us start thinking about our nation and our people before thinking about ourselves, our country would be leading whole world...
