Oh that IS easy, I love it! I’ll be linking.
Thank you for such a fabulous pattern!!! My son just loves the apron I made him…we bake all the time and he has been asking for one!!!

I love this pattern and decided to make bibs from it. I start with a 12″x12″ piece and the trim is about 2.5″. The straps are 21″ long. For the neck strap, I start with a 21″x2.5″ piece and sew it in a tube. After turning pressing it, I insert a 14″ piece of elastic and sew across the ends of the strap so the elastic is attached. I then attach the neck band to the apron similarly to how you did. This is an awesome neckstrap because it stretches to fit over the head, but also fits when it is on. Everyone loves my “cover all bibs.”

What size do you think an adult pattern would start with?
posse boss says
you can kind of audition it– hold a piece on point around 1 yard. i think that might be close. remember that the ties can help it meet in the back-
I made this apron for my grandson. I used denim and Disney Cars fabric. It is adorable and he loves it. The pattern and tutorial are perfect.
carla that sounds adorable! you should send me a photo 🙂
What size should the front square be, for an adult size?

THANK YOU for this tutorial! I bought a Simplicity pattern for an apron that is WAY too labor intensive to try again. I think this apron is so striking and would make wonderful gifts for friends. Like Kate, I am not sure how much fabric I would need for an adult size. I’m terrible with math…does anyone have any suggestions for how much I would need. I hate to try this and realize it wouldn’t be big enough.
I don’t sew very much, but I WAS able to make 3 of the 4-corner aprons using your wonderful tutorial. YIPPEE SKIPPY for me! Thanks so much for sharing. It makes such a stylish apron, and the friends who recieved the ones I ‘ve made were very impressed! ;-D
Karen that is wonderful! glad it was a good one and that you made so many- lucky recipients. 🙂

Hola como estas, ese delantal es hermoso y las niÃ±as les va encantar. Lo malo que yo veo es que no entendi las medidas, eso de pieza, plaza o pulgadas. Hubiera sido mas facil en centimetros, que es mas estandar. Muchas gracias, con amor. Ofelia vidal.

Hello, Thank you for the tutorial on the kids apron 🙂 I just have one question I am a bit confused on.
where it says to Step 1:
Sew the 3X16 inch strip to one side of the center square. Iron.
Sew the other 3 X 18 1/2 inch strip to the corner. The 2 strips will be touching at the end. I am confused on the 3 X 18 1 /2″ it will hang off one end due to it being longer???
Thank you please HELP ME someone.. 🙂
For the four corners apron, the square 16 x 16 is already with the inseam included? If not, how much do I have to add to the fabric before I cut it? Please advise. Thank you.
I’ve been looking for this pattern for a long time. Thanks for making it look easy to sew!
