Aprons! Patterns and fabric from Contemporary Cloth.

Aprons are all the rage. From patterns, to books, to magazines, ideas abound. An apron is a quick project to make. Use up some stash, try a new technique or simply let your creativity fly. The template is simple and the result can be enjoyed by you, given as a hostess gift, or lavished upon Mom for Mother's Day.

The Awesome Apron is a simple, well-designed pattern. I started with 3/4 yard in three different home dec materials. A rectangle is cut out, and a corner of the piece is simply cut away.

The edges of the fabric are turned under and pressed.

A contrast fabric is used for the pocket and ties. A one-inch bias tape maker was used to help press the ties, although it is not necessary to cut the fabric on the bias. The ties are then sewn on to the apron.
The ties are folded over the raw edge and sewn together in one step. Finally, the pocket is added in a simple and unique way.

A quick and satisfying project!
