The “LeCookie” children’s apron protects children’s clothing from splashes and stains. Patterned fabrics help you not to see every spill immediately. And with the right motif, the little kids quickly feel like big chefs. Thanks to the rubber bands, the apron can be quickly put on and taken off alone. For safety reasons, please always use children’s clothing with ribbons under supervision. The favorite baking mold or a recipe fits in the attached pocket.

Sew the patch pocket

Start with the patch pocket: overcast the seam allowance on the sides and bottom edge and iron each 1 cm towards the left side of the fabric.

First fold the top edge of the bag 1.5 cm and then again 2.5 cm to the left and iron the folded edge smooth. Then sew the double hem with a straight stitch.

If you like, you can decorate the bag with a piece of SnapPap. A label in the pocket seam that you can sew on in the next step also looks nice.

Put the bag left to right on the right side of the apron. If you want to sew on a label, slide it slightly under the side edge.

Quilt the bag tightly on the sides and the bottom edge. A closed overlock stitch or a zigzag stitch completely surrounds the pocket edge. Safe seam beginning and end at the upper pocket hem particularly well.

Topstitch the vertical line for the pocket divider. Secure the beginning and end of the seam well here too. You can also change the position of the seam to get different sized pockets.


Line all straight edges

Fold the hem on the bib of the apron by 1.5 cm and then 2.5 cm to the left and iron the folded edge smooth. Now you can sew the hem with a straight stitch.

Hem the sides and bottom hem as well.

If you want, you can sew this seam in one go. Leave the needle in the fabric on the corner and then turn the apron 90 ° with the presser foot raised.

Work on a document on the curves

It’s best to mark the side edge of the receipt so that you don’t get confused later.

Fold the hem allowance of the slip at the top and 2 cm to the left on the side and iron the fold edge smooth. Use your already hemmed apron to check whether you have worked exactly. Neat the outside rounding of the slip to fix the folded seam allowance.

Put the slip on the apron from right to right and sew it on with a seam allowance of 1 cm. Cut the seam allowance back to 3 mm so that the slip will look cleaner later.

Fold the receipt inside and carefully iron the wrapping edge. Do not sew the document until later. Do the same for the two receipts.

Sew on ribbons

Now insert the first side band 2.5 cm deep between the slip and the apron. The seam allowances are behind the tape. Make sure that the slip is nice and smooth. Sew the rubber band carefully – preferably with a square to match your bandwidth. You can capture your apron, ribbon and slip. Sew the second sideband on the other side as well.

It is best to check the length of the tapes on a first try.

Fold the open ends of the two ribbons inwards by 2 cm and pin them in place. You can now topstitch them or fix them directly with KamSnaps.

Attach KamSnaps to the ends. To tighten the apron, you can also attach additional KamSnaps to one of the two straps.

By the way, the KamSnaps hold more securely on a slightly thicker rubber band if you only attach them to the single-layer part.

Sew the neck band on both sides of the bib in the same way as the side bands. It’s also best to check the length of the tape when trying it on.

A final step

Now you can carefully topstitch the receipt from the right. Choose a distance of 2.5 cm (or your bandwidth).

Have fun between flour and milk! Happy baking and cooking!
