This adorable knot apron is so cute and easy to make!

Instructions are included to make the apron in three children’s sizes – 3/4, 5/6 and 7/8. It can be made in the sailor and clown styles.

Buttonholes are sewn to the top of the bib and the top of the skirt sides. Insert 1 1/2” grosgrain ribbon through the buttonholes and knot ends in front to attach the neck strap and waist ties. The neck strap can be adjusted as the child grows. If you prefer not to make buttonholes, you can fold the raw ends of the ribbon over and simply sew the folded ribbon ends to the apron at the placement of the buttonholes.

This eight page PDF e-pattern includes patterns for bibs and sailor collar, measurements for skirt rectangles, detailed materials list, clear instructions and step-by-step photographs.
