Oil cloth Painting Apron

I have found an Oil cloth Painting apron is the best way to go when my little one wants to paint…  Painting is so much fun but I cringe at the thought of how messy it can be. Oil cloth wipes clean and clothes stay paint free with this easy apron pattern.

Supplies I used to make this Apron~

  • Oil cloth
  • 2 packages double edge bias tape
  • sewing machine
  • scissors

  1. Lay out your oil cloth and fold in half with wrong sides together.  Using my little ones dress as a pattern for the apron I placed it along the fabric fold and cut it out.
  2. Now you have a basic apron design.
  3. I like to sew my bias tape along the top and bottom edges.  Rounding the bottom corners as I go.  Make sure you catch both edges of the tape.

4.  Now to make the neck and the ties I spread out the bias tape evenly making sure I have enough room at the neck for her head to pass through.  Sew your bias tape all the way around the apron and stitching down the ties.


Fun! Fun! Fun!
