Emergency Science Apron

Tuesday on the way home, Curly Girl told me she had forgotten to do part of her homework the night before. I asked her waht it was (forgetting homework is a big no-no so I wondered why she was being so casual.)
She needed a 'plain' apron for science. The kids are going to decorate them in class with fabric paint, glitter and other fun stuff.
I was thinking this was a cute idea and asked" when do you need it?"
She replied "tomorrow."
Well, you know its against my nature to just slink out and buy a plain old apron.
So, I whipped this one up using some white duck cloth from my stash.
I couldn't bring myself to make it TOTALLY plain so I used up a bunch of my bias tape remnants for a bit 'o' color.



It turned out pretty cute to be a plain jane apron. It has 3 large pockets and 1 pencil (or paintbrush) sized pocket.
I can't wait to see what it looks like once she puts the finishing touches on it....

What a great apron - the bias tape is a great idea. I can only imagine how neat it will be when Curly Girl adds her artistic touch.

I like the simple apron. Too cute. I bet her apron will still be cooler than everyone else's - even before the paint and decorations. Glad you like the job. It was great to get an update from you. I still I owe you one! By the end of this week!!! How is poor Suki holding up???

That is a very cute apron. Sometimes the simple things are the best. Love that you used different colors of bias binding, too. Be sure to post a pic after she's embellished it!

It turned out cute and it's much better than a simple store bought apron!
