This is seriously THE EASIEST apron ever. There are similar tutorials out there, but here’s how I make them!
1 package extra wide double fold bias tape and thread that matches the bias tape
1 piece of fabric cut approximately 17″ W by 26″ L, edges hemmed
- or -
you can be super lazy (like me) and use a dish towel
template for the pieces you’ll cut off, which can be printed here.
See how cute that dish towel is? The 2 pack was $3! And I think I’ll save the polka dot terry cloth one for one of these.
Cut out your template. Place it on both top corners of the towel. I traced it. You could pin it. Whatever’s easiest.
You can serge or zig zag the raw edges now, if you want.
Next, open your bias tape. Find the middle. Measure 7.5″ on either side and mark with pins. The pins should be 15″ apart. 7.5″ was a good measurement for 8-11 year old girls. Make it shorter for younger girls or longer for adults.
If you’re making this for your kids to play dress up, feel free to skip the next step.
Starting on the end of the side that will be the right of the apron (your left side when looking at it), sew just onto the shorter edge of the bias tape like this:
