How to modify a full sized apron to fit your child

Sweetpea has an adorable child sized apron, but with the amount of cooking she's been doing lately it's often in the wash when we want to use it...so we've improvised! It's pretty easy to modify an adult apron to custom fit your little helper:

Put the apron over your child's head as you normally would. Wrap the waist straps up through the neck loop, as shown. Pull them as far down as needed to bring the top of the apron to the correct spot on your child's chest. Now wrap the waist straps around your child's waist as many times as needed.

Talk about full coverage - at this age she needs it! Do you have child sized aprons for your little helpers? Do you use aprons at all? I love aprons of every size - thank goodness my mom likes to make them! I'd love to see links to any easy patterns or tutorials you like.

Hi there, Steph. Great apron tips. We have some cute ones, even for my Little Man. But what a great tip on making a big one smaller.

great idea. I don't use an apron. we mostly just make homemade dough for pizza...he seems to get flour everywhere but on himself so its not been an issue lately ;) (thanks for your email I'll definitely check those tanks out at target next time I'm there)
