Childrens apron from 1925, “Sy forkær smekker og servietter” by Olaug Berg, boksenteret 1999.

After finishing my daughters tunic yesterday I felt I needed a simple project. I ended up looking through some library books I had borrowed and found a very cute children’s apron. It is similar in shape to the apron I just made for myself https://sewingforfun.wordpress.com/2012/08/18/simplicity-5201-daisy-kingdom-apron/

Isnt this cute???

The only thing I do not like about this pattern is the embroidery. I guess things were different in 1925. One teddy bair holding a “whip” against an other,  is not my choice of children’s motif.

I love these old aprons and of corse I needed to make it even  though I had no idea who it would be for. But I knew this would be simple, something to relax with :-).

I used an old shirt I would no longer use for fabric. Bound the edges with bias tape that I folded over to the back and placed an iron on aplique on the pocket in front. The original version has a pretty crocheted along the edge.

I have decided that it is OK to keep some of the very cute small stuff I make at times. Most likely I will be a granny some day, my kids might enjoy a stack of “stuff” they can dig through when that time comes. This way I will also always have a “quick” children’s gift when I need it.

Here is the apron I made 🙂
