I own only one apron and I find myself always folding it and using it as a half apron. I had a good bit of light weight denim and canvas fabric so I thought I would use it to make a true half apron. It turned out even cuter than I expected. Here are step by step instructions. Enjoy!
30″ x 36″ base material (I used denim)
5″ x 72″ contrasting material (I used canvas)
Pocket from old pair of jeans
Heavy weight white thread (if you’re sewing with denim or canvas)
Size 18 needle
- Cut your base material and contrasting material to the measurements above.
- Do a double fold and iron one long side and the two short sides of the base fabric.
- Sew the three ironed sides.
- Double fold the other long side to create a 3″ fold.
- Sew the long side.
- Fold the contrasting material in half long ways and iron.
- Sew the material along the cut edge.
- Attach a safety pin to one end of contrasting material (tie) and pull through to turn right side out.
- Double fold, iron and sew each end of the tie.
- Feed the tie through the 3″ sew long edge of your apron.
- Pick a spot of the pocket and pin into place.
- Sew the pocket on all three edges.
