Easter Apron Tutorial
Today’s Tutorial is for my Nana. She Loves Aprons and I hope she likes this one. I hope you Like it too.
Fabric: (Large Apron) One print and one lining cut to 25″ x 28″. Three strips of the print cut to 6″ x 25″. One 6.5″ square for the pocket. (It is not necessary to line the apron but I find that the lining adds a finished look.)
Lace or decorative trim 3 yard pack (Enough to trim around 4 sides of the apron.)
Basic sewing supplies
(Be sure to wash and Iron the fabric before cutting and sewing. Follow the washing instructions for your fabric.)
Layer your lace on two sides. (Yes you can layer all the way around and pin the corners down to keep from sewing them in the wrong place.)
Carefully layer the lining on top. (Right sides together) Pin in place.
Layer the apron base into the fold of the waist band. Be sure to line up the waist evenly. You may want to pin the center point on each and line up the pins. (Sorry about the blur… not sure what happened.)
Pin in place.
Stitch the entire line from one corner of the tie to the other with a straight stitch. Don’t forget to back-stitch.
I make my waistband a little longer by folding the seam an 1/8″ instead of 1/4″.
I added a second decorative stitch below the straight stitch for an added detail.
Fold all sides on the pocket in 1/4″ and Iron the seams down. Layer and pin the pocket in place. I chose a piece of fabric the matches the design. The pocket disappears unless you have something in it. It looks nice and does not take away from the pattern of the print.
I used a straight stitch and the decorative stitch for both decoration and stability of the pocket.
The Apron is complete.
