All Smocked Up

Art Smock Front

It's really hard to believe right now, but on Thursday Liam starts school. When I was reading through the information pack, I noticed that he needs an art smock, so I made him one, using some fabric that has been in my stash for more than three years! The space fabric is Space Cases, by Patrick Lose and the Green fabric is by Amy Schimler - both are from Robert Kaufman.

I used Kellie Wulfsohn's tutorial to make the smock. If you have an A3 printer, you can print the top half of the patterns on A3 in landscape format and sketch out the rest.

I'm not sure I am ready for my first baby to go to school yet, but at least we have his art smock all sorted.

SYST: I used approximately five fat quarters for this project.
Running totals, in = 103, out = 21, total = +82


  1. Bright, fun fabric that's just perfect for an art smock. I need to make a couple of these.

    1. Yes - I think he could get almost any colour paint on there and it won't matter. I am hoping the bright colours will be inspiring :)

  2. That's a bit too fancy to splash with paint!! YOu might need to make him another one to wear over the top...
