From shopping for fabric to the actual sewing, making aprons is a whole lot of fun!
For instance, the Sassy Chic Apron uses three different fabrics.
I used a large stripe for the main skirt, a smaller harlequin print for the ruffle, and polka dot for the ruffle band and waist ties.
So-many-options! The possibilities are endless.
My favorite part of this apron is the pocket. The pattern includes directions to add a piece of trim fabric on the pocket, but I’ve also used a small piece of the rickrack.
Again, so many options.
For the Eco Chic Apron I went in a whole different direction.
I decided to use a classic design for my fabric instead of something whimsical.
I love how practical this apron is. Its economical to make (hence, its name Eco Chic) and its so simple, an absolute beginner can confidently tackle it.
I was inspired to create this pattern because I had so many fabric scraps from sewing aprons for my Etsy store.
I was looking for a way to put my scraps to work and I just started putting pieces together.
It still remains one of my favorites. And, here’s why: Check out the ‘hidden’ pocket.
My second favorite feature is the pleating in the front. It gives the apron such a clean, preppy feel.
And don’t forget the hem. The double needle finishes off this apron giving it a clean, classic look.
