Make this child’s apron in a couple of hours. Less if you have no interruptions and you can sew a straight line fast. I’m still working on that.
Measure the waist of whom the apron will made for. Take half the waist measurement and use that as the width of your apron. For the length use about 5 inches from the knees.
Cut out the pattern. Now measure out a smaller pattern to go on top of the main piece you just cut out. This piece is about 2 1/2 inches all around smaller.
Measure out the strings to go around the waist. String length is the waist measurement plus, 18 inches added on each side.
Use quilting bias for the apron strings.Matched the bias to the fabric or get creative. Use a complementary color or whatever your heart tells you.
Put the strings up to the fabric to make sure you like how it looks before you sew any more.
Fold the edge over on the fabric that will be on top. You don’t want any raw edges showing. Now sew.
On the fabric that is the larger piece, use double Bias tape for the edges. When you are done sewing these two separate pieces, put them together and place them between the quilting bias tape.
Sew the bias tape to the two fabrics.
The ends of the strings, fold the fabric over to show a smooth edge. Sew this.
Place the two sides of the bias tape together and sew all the way to the other end. This should seal your ends and give a finished edge to your apron.
Have Fun making this! I would love to see your versions of this apron!
