if you're on the hunt for a last minute gift for a child or toddler you may not need to look any further than your kitchen! did you know that kitchen towels make perfect kid/toddler sized aprons?! i didn't, but when i found tutorials for them on Pinterest i knew i had to make one for zo since she is obsessed with playing "make dinner". i actually have more in the works for my little nieces as well! all you need to do is search "DIY kitchen towel apron" and you'll find countless tutorials available. i used this one from the adorable blog One Little Minute. these are seriously so easy to make and if you have a sewing machine it'll probably take like 20min tops. I don't have one though so this took me a bit longer since I had to hand sew it all.
i happened to have a pack of new towels i got on clearance from target like a year ago and they worked perfectly for this project! then i just used some extra ribbon I had laying around for the waist & neck ties.
and for the pocket i actually used the pocket from one of my husbands old shirts that had a stain on it. i added a stitched heart into it as a way of saying he'll always be close to zo' heart. he is her favorite after all...
It definitely isn't perfect but it was made with lots of love and i don't think zo will notice any of the many mistakes for years to come...
i hope this helps if you've been looking for a creative gift for your little bakers!
Merry (almost) Christmas!!
