Today I have a toddler apron & toy oven mitt free pattern to share with you!
If you have a little last minute gift sewing to do this is quick and easy
Perfect for pretend play! Or the apron is great for real kitchen fun too!
Remember the oven mitt is a toy and is not to be used with any hot items.
Thank you miss sassy pants for the nice modeling
This particular set is for an almost 2 year old so it is a bit short on Anne who is almost 5. If you are sewing for an older child you might want to just add a little length
So much fun for cooking up some pretend goodies
The neck on the apron is elastic to it’s easy on/off and it ties in the back
*As with any item with ties/neck straps this should be used with parental supervision
And bonus it’s even reversible!
Ready to sew? Let’s get started!
- Download your FREE Pattern. Pattern should be printed at 100%. You will need to tape the 2 apron pieces together along the dashed lines
- 1/2 yard of 2 coordinating fabrics (you will need additional fabric if you plan to lengthen the apron)
- 3/4″ elastic
- 1/4 yard lightweight fusible interfacing
- 1/4 yard fleece or terry cloth for oven mitt lining
Let’s start with the oven mitt:
1. Trim 1/2″ off the bottom of your fleece/terry cloth layer. Fold the bottom edge of the outer layer over 1/4″ two times and topstitch in place.
2. Working from the right side sew the outer layer and fleece/terry cloth together with a few diagonal rows of stitching to create a quilted effect. I made my lines about 1.5″ apart from each other.
3. With right sides together (RST) sew the long edges of the hanging loop together. Turn right side out with a safety pinm
4. Fold the hanging loop in half and position both tail ends along the raw edge towards the bottom of the oven mitt and baste in place
5. With RST sew the 2 oven mitt pieces together using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Turn right side out and you’re done!
Moving on to the apron!
1. With RST sew the long edges of the neck strap together. With RST sew the long edges and one short edge of each waist tie together. Use a 1/4″ seam allowance for this step. for the waist ties I like to sew across the short edge at an angle to create a tapered point. For a little extra stability I like to add a strip of fusible interfacing to the waist ties. Turn right side out.
2. Slide your 3/4″ through the neck strap with a safety pin and secure at each end. Topstitch around all edges of the waist ties.
3. Baste the raw edges of the waist ties to the apron 1/2″ below the arm cutout edge. Baste the raw edges of the neck strap to the upper edge 1/2″ in from the arm cutout edge.
4. With RST sew the 2 apron pieces together using a 1/2″ seam allowance and leaving a 4″ gap at the bottom.
5. Turn right side out and press flat. Tuck in the raw edges at the bottom and topstitch around the entire apron.
And you’re done!
