- 1/2 yard fabric or 2 fat quarters (I used 1 fat quarter and pieced together the pocket with the scraps.)
- 180+inches of bias tape (I used this method and got over 190 inches from a fat quarter)
- ruler/scissors/iron – basic sewing supplies
Instructions: Step 1: Cut out Apron pieces and assemble apron. Download the apron pattern here. (Be sure to download the pattern to your pc and print from there. If you print directly from Google docs, it will skew the pattern dimensions). Cut out and tape together the pattern. Fold the fabric in half, place pattern on fold and cut out main piece.
|I just couldn’t decide on a contrasting fabric for the pocket, so I pieced together the fat quarter scraps. You can see where I pieced them together.|
Sew right along the edge of the bias tape:
Next, line up the pocket on top of the apron and sew along the pocket/apron edges and up the middle of the pocket as indicated in the picture below.
Step 2: Adding the bias tape around the rest of the apron: Cut a piece of bias tape for the top of the apron. Sandwich the top of the apron in the bias tape, pin in place and sew along the edge…
Next, aplly the bias tape around the bottom half of the apron as shown in the photo below.
You have two options when you get to the first bottom corner of the apron. 1st option: You can cut the bias tape and apply it in three pieces. (If you do this, add the bias tap to the sides first and bottom last. When you add the bottom piece, just fold the edges of the bias tap in as shown below to keep the apron edge finish pretty.
Cut two pieces of bias tape 40 inches long. (You can do less than this if you need too, but it will affect how much “bow” you can tie at the top and back.) Center the bias tape on the curve of the apron so you have an equal amount of tie at the top and bottom of the apron. Pin in place.
Staring at one end of the bias tape tie, fold in the edge as shown and sew across this folded edge and all the way to the opposite end of the tie.
