Robert Kaufman Apron with Logo

Pre-printed fabric panels are very popular throughout the year, however they are especially pretty during the holidays. What to do with them can be a little more challenging. How about a quick apron project! No pattern needed, some easy measurements and few cuts and you are set to go. Let’s get started.

 

Supplies:

Rectangle fabric panel, Double folded bias tape, Jumbo rick rack, Sewing machine, Iron, Basic sewing and cutting supplies.

How To:

Trim the apron panel following the diagram. Note: that not all fabric panels are the same, adjust measurements as needed.  Diagram A Turn over the top edge of the apron one inch, press and repeat to create a double turned hem. Top stitch along the top and bottom edges of the folds. Measure 1 1/2″ from the side edge along the top and place a pin, measure 1 1/2″ from the first pin and place a second pin. Form a tuck by bringing the two pins together. Stitch across the tuck. Repeat for the opposite side. Diagram B & C Open the folds of the bias tape and pin to the sides of the apron. Starting from the top edge, release a pin and insert rick rack and repin. Continue inserting the rick rack along each of the apron sides. Diagram D Turn under the bottom of the fabric panel 1″ and press. Repeat to create a double turned hem. Top stitch along the top and bottom edges of the folds. Diagram E Cut two 60″ lengths of bias tape. Measure down 20 inches, open the fold of the bias tape and  pin along the raw edge of the apron front. Release the first pin and insert rick rack, turning under the raw edge and repin. Continue inserting rick rack along the apron front , turning under the raw edge of the rick rack when you reach the end. Top stitch down either side of the bias tape to secure the rick rack and bias tape to the apron, as well as creating the neck and waistline tie.

  1. I love this, thank you. I have been wanting an apron for myself when crafting. I think I’ll make this for me,it’ll be very simple. I love yours! TFS!!

    • Thanks for stopping by. I agree there are times I am afraid to get dirty as well. However perhaps at a holiday party when your pretty dress becomes more important than the pretty apron?
