Hippo Apron!

I made this for a friend of mine's little one. I love this hippo fabric - barnslig from Ikea ;). I used a McCall's pattern for the main body of the apron, then I modified the ties (they're slightly longer and just rectangular rather than angled), pockets (square, double sided, and flipped down to accent), and neck strap (adjustable with snaps!). I wanted it to grow with her kids, it'll fit at least an 18 month old all the way to 6 or 7 years old!

I also whipped up a little "kitchen towel" to match with an aqua terry type fabric and the hippo accent.

Now I need to make 3 more for my girls.
