We use aprons for cooking, art, and most importantly pretend play. My five-year-old has been asking for a "restaurant apron" for awhile now and unfortunately they do not commonly make waist aprons for kids. With a pillowcase we made one...in about five minutes!

How We Did It

Five-Minute Apron

Find an old pillowcase that you are willing to cut holes through for the sake of some major imaginative play. I got mine for just $1 at the local thrift store.

We wrapped a ribbon around Emma's waist twice, and then snipped the ribbon. Then I wrapped a small piece of masking tape on one end to be our "sewing" needle.

At the closed end of the pillowcase, I made small slits about an inch or so apart all the way across.

Emma got to sewing! Oh, how she loved this!

Once the ribbon was all the way through, I cut off the extra fabric at the bottom of the apron.

Emma put on her apron--then she opened up her play restaurant for business!
