Side Stitches: Kids Apron

Ok, let’s be honest here, I have an extremely wild case of sewing ADD. I start things and never finish them. I have a list a mile long of projects I’ve started but haven’t completed or projects I’d like to start. Most of them are in a corner, collecting dust as we speak.

Maybe I just need to create a wish list! A list of things I wish to do when I get around to having the time.

I’m currently in the process of re-purposing my crafty corner. My son was taken down by a flu bug for a weekend and I took advantage of that time off to clean and weed out unnecessary items in my house. I’m not done yet but it was a good start.

So to add to my never ending list of things I’d wish to start, finish or consider doing in my future clean crafty corner, I’m adding an apron project.

My son loves to pretend. He’s been a dragon, a pirate, a firefighter, and a karate kid. You name it, he’s dressed up as it just to go grocery shopping. Recently, he informed me he would like to grow up and be a chef.

Now his past dream jobs have been (in no particular order) Bob The Builder, a zoologist, a veterinarian, a paleontologist,  and a dragon. While these are all still options in his opinion, chef has taken the top spot and he’s determined to learn to cook.

Tonight he’ll help me make Meatball and Spaghetti Soup from our favorite recipe site, Skinny Taste. We love this site and have a number of successful meals thanks to the simple and healthy recipes shared here.

And I figured why not re-purpose some of my material and make him a little apron? I was originally going to use this dragon material for a DIY lunch baggie project since he loved dragons and it seemed like a fun project. But that never was actualized and is still on my wish list of projects to-do.

So I went on the hunt today and found a simple apron pattern so I can consider using his dragon material for an apron if I actually turn on my machine and finish a damn project. And this Classic Apron pattern I found makes it seem like a piece of cake.

Will I end up doing this? Not sure but it’s another project on my To-Do Wish List. I’d like to think that I will one day accomplish one of my many side projects or even one of my larger quilting projects.

Either way I like to dream.

Add another one to my wish list and cross your fingers I get around to starting something crafty soon!
