Hi! Allegra here! I have an easy half apron tutorial for you today! The back story is that we have always had this nice old checkered half apron that we wear when we are cooking or playing dress up, or pioneers or suchlike. I have always worn this apron, and lately I decided to make a semi-matching one for Aria. So, using some simple measurements, I created this easy half apron tutorial (WITH PICTURES, YAY) for you.
A piece of fabric 36 inches wide by 29 inches long for the apron.
A piece of fabric 67 inches long by 2 inches wide. (If you want a wider waistband, then make the width be 4 inches)
Note: I used pretty quilting cotton from our stash. I’m sure cotton works best here.
Step 2: Around the bottom and two of the sides of the apron piece, iron over ¼ or ½ inch, depending on what size hem you want. Note: Usually, I iron down ¼ inch, and then fold it over the second time as I’m sewing. If you want to iron it over twice, though, by all means go for it!
Aria modeled her new apron, I think she likes it!
