Crayon Apron for Isaiah

Our grandson had his 2nd birthday recently.  I put this color crayon apron together for him, he can wear it, it can be hung on the chair or set on the table.

Cut 1 1/2 or 2 inch strips, depending on the size of your crayons, in either solid or print fabric in the color of the crayons, sew these together and top this with a piece of muslin or other fabric folded in half with raw edges at the bottom.  Stitch on the seamlines for the strip piece to create "pockets" for the crayons.  Fold over the top and stitch down creating a slot through which you can thread some cording.  Wha La you are done!  Toss in a pad of paper and you have one delighted child.

I put the crayons in opposite so they would show up in the photo, but the child can match the colors or mix, their choice.

Here is the happy artist, Isaiah, busy working on a picture for Grandma.

  1. What a cute idea. My grandbaby is still at the "eats crayons" stage, but I'll keep this in mind when she gets a little older. Great idea!
