Here’s a $5 dollar and 30 minute apron that you still have time to make for Mother’s Day!
What you need:
* 1 yard of fabric…(it will make 2 aprons but you need the 36 inch length)
* 1 package of matching bias tape (or made from fabric which is what I used here)
* matching thread
#1 Find an apron that you like (I like simple with a curved edge) and lay it on top of your fabric. Cut around this pattern leaving a inch or so for seam allowances.
#2 Starting at base of one arm and going to the base of the other arm, pin bias tape and sew to the BACK of the apron. (Sorry I didn’t take a picture of this part….it will be the bottom curve of your apron–the opening for the head through to both ties will be one big long piece.)
#5 You are now going to make the whole head opening piece and ties together in one big long piece. Find the middle of your bias tape that you have left. This will be at the back of your neck. Hold apron up and find where you want apron to be on chest. Pin main apron fabric in between layers of bias tape in place like picture.
My Total cost a whopping $2.24 (I used a Joann’s coupon and already had the bias tape—but bias tape usually runs around $2.50 at a fabric store) A mother’s day gift for 5 bucks. Now that’s what I love.
And I promise the skirt tutorial is coming, but it may not be until mid next week. I am a bit swamped…but I promise it IS coming!
