I know a little fellow in the family who could use some of these and thought I would give one a try. I purchased and downloaded the pattern and got started. Here's the Bapron I made.

Instead of purchased double fold bias tape or making my own, I decided to use some left over bias quilt binding (which I had cut the wrong size for Colorful Cats pillow cover). So I started with the red gingham binding and found the cute school bus print in my stash to go with it.
I even sewed on the binding as if I were sewing it onto a quilt. I reduced some of the bulk by trimming part of the binding in the ties at the neck. I'll ask the mother after the little fellow has worn it a few times about the binding I used. She was thrilled about the extra coverage it would provide.

Here's a closer look at the Bapron.

I realize the little guy is a long ways from going to school or riding the bus but it's never too early to think about learning. I took this photo of all the schools buses parked and lined up at the Pickens County school bus shop.
