My kids love helping in the kitchen. What kid doesn't? So, my mother sewed up these pretty little aprons for all the girls in the family one spring. If you look at the picture closely, you can see she even made matching aprons for each of the girls' Bitty Babies. They were all thrilled!
These are great ideas for being in the kitchen or getting into character when playing 'house', too. My kids pull them out all the time. Do a quick Google search for 'kid's apron patterns' and you will have several free patterns from which to choose. Or, head over to Joann's during one of their sales and get a pattern for $2 or less.
