I have started making Christmas gifts! These aprons will be gifts for my kids. They love to help me in the kitchen, and they have really started to love painting, so I thought a cute apron would be perfect. I found the free pattern over on Sew Liberated, a great blog you should check out. Here's the link for the pattern: Montessori Child's Apron. The pattern says it's for a 3-6 year old child, however I thought it looked a little small, so I added an inch to each side, and two inches to the bottom. For Caleb's, I added an inch to the neck strap, which probably wasn't necessary. I also added several inches to his waist strap, but then ended up shortening it to the recommended length after it was done. I should also mention that it took me less than an hour to make one and used a small amount of fabric, so it was a quick inexpensive gift.
