Two cute little Aprons

It's  Fall Holiday time and after visiting France for a few days I am busy planning for our new unit in Kiga, Harvest/Fall. 

As part of the unit we are setting up a Farmer's Market in our dramatic play corner. 
I decided I wanted to make a couple of kid's aprons for the market workers. I found two old tea towels and got out my sewing machine. 

I started by ironing the towels before folding them in half and cutting the sides away. 

Once it was cut I attached some red trim for the neck strap as well as the apron strings. I used a zigzag stitch on the edges. I didn't worry about binding the edges because these are just for some fun play. 

I cut two pockets from the rest material and ironed them on with some binding tape from Ikea. 

Lastly I stitched them into place with some embroidery thread. 

I'm pleased with how they turned out and I'm sure the kids will love them. 

I'm heading to school tomorrow to set up our little market. I'll post pictures once it is done.
