Master class: we sew a children's apron for one evening

In our master class we will show an example of how you can sew a child's apron for a boy as fast as possible.

Sewing an apron for children

By this basic method you can sew an apron for the girl, but, of course, in this case the fabric should be chosen with the appropriate coloring, the pattern can be made more complicated, for example, with a round skirt and a bodice, and of course add ruffles, lace or appliques. This is how girls' aprons, sewn according to the method described by us, can look.

So, in order to sew our own children's apron, we need:

  1. Dense natural fabric as a basis;
  2. Bright matter for the pocket or decor;
  3. Slanting c / b beak (try to find or make it yourself by hi-bake, because the satin, firstly, slippery, and secondly, it does not fit well with the natural fabric);
  4. Threads in the color of the beak;
  5. Sewing accessories: machine, pins, scissors.
Pattern for children's apron

First we need to cut the fabric. You can do this with a ready-made pattern. But we chose the easiest way to cut without using a pattern, but with some measurements.

  1. Cut out the rectangle. Its width can be chosen without measurements - as a rule, it is 45-60. The length is calculated using measurements on the child - we determine on the chest the place from which the apron should begin and measure the desired length.
  • Since we will edge all the edges of the apron, the allowances for the hem are not taken into account. But if you do not want to edging the entire apron, then the length and width should be determined taking into account the allowances for a 3 cm cuff on one side;
  • Sew a child apron can be both for the growth, and with the length of the "mini".
  1. The resultant rectangle is folded in half (along) the front side inward. Now, on this workpiece, you need to make the side cuts, indicating a concave (or straight) line. To do this: on the baby's chest, determine the appropriate width of the upper part of the apron, for example, it can be 23 cm. Then measure the distance from the top of the apron to the waist line, that is, where the straps will be sewn. At the top of the folded rectangle from the bend to the side, note the half of the desired width of the breastplate of the apron (23 cm / 2 = 11.5 cm). From this mark we draw a concave or straight cut line to the level of the waist, which we have already determined earlier. We cut off the excess and proceed to prepare the pocket.
  2. The pocket, in our case, is just a rectangular piece of bright cloth. For the girl, pockets in the form of a heart, a semicircle, etc. are more suitable.

So, the workpiece is ready, we proceed to processing its edges with the help of a hem or edging, as in our master class. We begin work from the breastplate. Ribbon, braid, strip of fabric should be prepared in an appropriate way - bend, bend and iron.

  • The master class uses slanting crochet from cotton fabric - yes, it is not so easy to find in the store, but it is very easy to work with, since it does not slip and fits well with cotton cloth.

First, we spend the bake on the top of the apron. The length of the bake should be slightly larger than the width of the top of the product.

Then we sew the edge of the apron, beginning with the waist line from one side of the product and ending with the other. At the corners, the bake is bent and stitched as shown in the photo below.

Treatment of the corners of the children's apron by the bake

It should look like this.

The remaining edges that have not been machined will be sheathed with a bake, which will form the tie. To do this, we take approximately 135 cm of bake and, leaving a segment of 45 cm free (this is the future string), attach it with pins from the top to the bottom edge of the rounded side of the apron (photo left). First, we squeeze the beak around the edge of the product, and then the remaining strings (photo on the right). The same actions are done on the other side.

If desired, you can make a string in the form of a loop, you need to use 1 long bake, and not two.

Hooray! Almost ready - you only need to sew a pocket. But first it must be sewn from all sides on the inner edge of the jam as in the photo below.

Sheathing of the children's apron pocket

Now we sew the pocket. We put it in the center of the apron, fix it with pins and we spread it from three sides along the outer edge of the bake.

If desired, you can make a pocket with 1-3 compartments. In our lesson we will make two compartments - one narrow (for example, for a pen) and one wider - for important items of a small chef. Just determine the width of each compartment and put it in the right place.

That's it. We show, try on a new thing for the kid and go to cook!
