Children's Christmas Apron

Here's a cute and easy way to make a holiday apron for children! 

 All you'll need is a kitchen hand towel and ribbon.

You can find holiday hand towels in almost any store during the holidays.

-Fold the towel in half lengthwise.
-Then take a ruler and measure 3 1/2 inches in on the top and mark it. 
(Make sure it's not on the folded side)
and 9 inches down the side and mark it.  (See picture above)
(Although my towel is not folded in half it shows you where your cut's should be made.)
-Next take your ruler and trace a line from the two points you marked. (like the picture above)

-(Your towel should still be folded in half.)  Now cut the towel on the line that you marked. 
-Open it up.  Your now ready for your sewing machine.
-Fold the cut edges over about a 1/4 inch. twice to hide the rough edges and pin in place.  
-Next pin your ribbon in place for the neck and the ties around the back. 
-Sew in place.

And that's all there is too it!  Easy as pie!  Now your ready to let your children help you make some!

Happy Baking!
