Thrifty Tip #65: Before paying the high prices of sewing patterns, check the internet for quality free patterns and tutorials! Here's a free apron tutorial to get you started!
**Disclaimer: I am not a highly skilled seamstress and do not claim to be one! This is the world's easiest project. You will scoff at my sewing ability and this lacking tutorial...I'm okay with that.**
#1: Start with 2 square pieces of fabric; this can be 2 coordinating pieces or 2 of the same pattern. I chose to make my squares 22.5 inches on each side because the fabric was 45 inches wide and I could just cut the piece in half.
This may be a quick process or it may take for.ev.er....depending on the mood that your bobbin case is in. Mine was in a funk. But I still won!
#5. Once square is turned right side out, carefully iron edges again. Use a small hand stitch to close up the square. (or have just my mom do it...she's better at it anyway!)
#6. Fold down one corner of the square approximately 7 inches on both sides. Iron well so it stays flipped down. Hand stitch a button in the middle to hold it in place.
#7: For the neck strap, cut approximately 15-18 inches of grosgrain ribbon (depending on the size of the child). Sew on another button--using it to also affix the ribbon to the backside of the apron. On the other side, sew on a button and use that button to affix a small velcro tab on the back. Simply affix the other piece of the velcro to the ribbon.
