Last Saturday we hold the Kids Apron workshop at Chateau Bon Bon in Jingumae.
The outcome was much cuter than expected! Look at the nice fitting and easy sewn aprons, made of Mister Magpie’s Tea Towels .
In a 90 minutes workshop we’ll guide you to transform a Mister Magpie teatowel into a cute apron for kids. After the workshop, there will be a wonderful cozy tea party with English pastry and time enough to exchange, chat and learn more about Chateau Bon Bon, Mr Magpie and the Sewing Circle.
Reservations are kindly required
Please e-mail Mr Magpie at hello[@]mistermagpie.com
Fee: ¥5000 (including 1 teatowel, workshop, tea and the most delicious pastry)
We brainstormed a bit this morning how to transform the tea towels in kid’s size aprons and got inspired by the way the Japanese Yukata (Summer Kimono) can be adjusted to different sizes, by folding and wrapping the garment.
We do the same thing with the towel: We fold the apron and get a little pocket around the bustline and like this the actual towel size of 47cm by 78cm is shortened to 41cm. Then we fold the corners to create a nice apron shape. The edges will be fastened by some simple stiches and after the ribbon has been taken in, the little apron for kids is ready!
