I remember as a little girl I had an apron that had a big pocket for a drawing pad and then thin little pockets that crayons slipped into. Has anyone seen a pattern for something like this? I want to make one for my granddaughter. I am sure I can make one up if I have to, but why re-invent the wheel if there is something already available.

I know of 2 free patterns for you! Both on home sewing association site ( Go to Projects, and then you'll find one that's called a child's bib, under Infant-Toddler projects, and one that's called an apron, under Kids projects. Both would be very easy to adapt for size, and you could tinker with the pockets to make them have slots for crayons if you like. Oh! How the little ones like sticking things in pockets!

Wow, another great idea, I had found the child's bib, but never thought about the painting apron idea. You are all so chock full of ideas! I am always inspired when I get onto this message board, makes me want to get into the sewing room RIGHT NOW! :bolt:
