Apron: Fabric - roughly 20 inches long by 12 inches wide, extra for pocket if desired
Apron Ties around waist: Fabric OR ribbon - roughly 20 inches long
Apron Ties around neck: Fabric OR ribbon - roughly 20 inches long
Thread to match
Puffy Paint for writing, if desired
Measure approximately 13 inches up from the bottom edge of the apron. This is where you can cut a curve to create the arm area on both sides. Mine curved in about 2 inches in from the edge, at most. Stitch all edges of the fabric to look nice (sorry for not using sewing lingo here!) Cut out a pocket if desired and stitch those edges to look finished. Stitch that onto the apron, wherever you want. Stitch the ties to the sides of the apron, right at the bottom of the arm area. Attach the neck ties to the top of the apron. Write their name or whatever with puffy paint...decorate as desired!
