I made this cute apron for my future sister in law as part of her bridal shower gift. Her favorite colors are pink and black, obviously. I wanted to hurry and post it before Mother's Day because these would make a very nice Mother's Day gift. I mean what Mother doesn't use an apron?
3/4 yard main fabric piece
3/4 yard coordinating fabric
First fold your fabric over 9.5 inches. Next cut your fabric to these measurements.
Now for the straps, belt and pockets. Cut 1 strip of your coordinating fabric from the bottom of the WOF that is 7 x 21 inches, this is the belt(make sure to cut just 7 inches up from the bottom.) Next you are going to cut 4 pieces that are 3.5 x WOF that is remaining after cutting the 7 inches off it should be about 37 inches long, these are the straps. Now cut 2 pieces that are 8 x 7 inches for pockets.
Okay that we are done with all that cutting lets get started. THIS IS ALL SEWN USING 1/4 INCH SEAM ALLOWANCE!!! Fold your 4 straps in half with right sides touching and sew along one side and the top. I curved my top a little but it still looks cute to do a straight across top. Then clip corners.
