patchwork apron

My daughter loves to play in here kitchen...and I love to make her aprons to cook with. Yesterday, i wanted to sew, but wasn't quite ready to start a new my natural response was to pull out a pattern that I had purchased the other week.

The pattern is by Indygo Junction, named Jane and Sally Apron. Now I have to tell you that I would not recommend this pattern to anyone. The instructions were useless and I ended up just looking at the front picture to figure out all the details. I did alter it a bit, by widening the scallops on the bottom. I adore the way it turned out, and Izzy is really excited about her new little apron!

I couldn't decide on one fabric for the ties, so ended up using two different fabrics....a detail that I really like, now that it is done. I also chose to fully line the apron so that the quilting of the squares would stand out a bit more.
I love the patterns together so much that I am already planning a matching doll blanket for her bitty baby.


  1. it really is the cutest apron ever! LOVE IT!

  2. What a stunning apron! And so a perfect gift for a domestic toddler ;)

  3. The IS the cutest apron ever! What a lucky girl :)

  4. Love the apron. I've heard similar complaints about their patterns. I've used one and ended up rewriting their instructions. Theirs didn't make a lot of sense.

    I do love the items you made for your lucky little girl.

  5. This is super cute! You are good!
