I’ve been pondering doing a children’s crossback apron for quite a while – a couple of weeks ago a lady contacted me via Etsy to ask for just that! Her husband had bought her one of my No 4:3 aprons, which loves, and she wanted a couple like it for her young son.
I made a version of the adult No 7, so that the apron could be size/age adjustable age 4-7. I used the long side offcuts from cutting denim No 4 & No 7, seaming the aprons down the middle. This will reduce the final price of the apron a bit, when added to the making time which is only 40 minutes less than making than an adult size apron, plus webbing, d-rings and thread.
Here is the first sample….it is rather cute.
