Toddler apron

I have been meaning to make a little apron for my toddler, for covering up during baking. (Although not much good for painting as we favour the 'paint naked and then straight in the bath' school of thought in this house). I took the basic shape from my son's shop-bought apron and found a sturdy bit of fabric in the stash - think it was a remnant from ikea. The apron strings are woven tape, hemmed at the ends to prevent fraying.

I am toying with the idea of adding a pocket to the front as seen on some pinnies. But I have to ask myself, what are those pockets for? Surely they mostly catch flour/raisins etc as the children enthusiastically help stir the mix?

The great thing about making things for children is that as they are smaller scale, you don't need so much fabric. The downside of course is that they're not always bowled over by your creative efforts. Still, I think this would make a nice little gift for a toddler/preschooler, maybe with the addition of a few biccie cutters and a rolling pin...
