Apron and bandanna set

Apron and bandanna set
Before leaving kindergarten and entering entering elementary school next April, Sidra and his classmates will cook lunch for the whole school next week. For this occasion, the kids have to wear apron and bandanna which have to be submitted to school by tomorrow.

I didn’t have the chance to buy fabrics because I still got the flu, so I pulled out some leftover from past projects and made this set. The fabric is dark denim (leftover from this dress) and some linen/cotton with red stripes on it (leftover from this bag).


Instead of using ties, the apron bands are attached by a pair of buttons on the side. I think it’ll be easier for Sidra to put it on by himself. The letters on the apron are made of red felt with adhesive backing. I print some letters on paper, attached them upside down to the backing of the red felt and cut it out. Then I peeled off the backing and just stick and iron the letters on the apron.

The bandanna doesn’t need to be tied either, I put some elastic to the band so Sidra can just slip it on. I also made a small bag in coordinating fabric to carry the apron and bandanna. As usual, Sidra wants his helmet beetles (kabuto-mushi) everywhere, so there’s one on the apron, one on the bandanna, and one on the bag.

For a leftovers project, I guess they turned out not bad at all.

    cool.. nice combination, I love it. What’s the meaning of those letters? (I guess it’s Sidra name?)
