Mother’s Day AND my birthday is fast approaching and I seriously wouldn’t mind if someone made this apron for me as a gift! But since my husband and my children lack any sewing skills, I might just have to make one for myself! I absolutely adore the patchwork pattern to this apron – and the tutorial over at Sew4Home is easy to follow.
- 5 fat quarters (or cut 5 rectangles that measure 18″ x 22″). They used Amy Butler’s Love collection in: (1) Sandlewood/Turquoise, (2) Bliss Bouquet/Teal, (3) Tumble Roses/Pink, (4) Memento/Midnight and (5) Arabesque/Lime.
- Apron top and pocket lining: ½ yard of 44″ fabric (They used a quilting weight ivory sateen.) NOTE: You will need the full half yard.
- 3 yards of 1″ lightweight cotton webbing in natural
- 2 feet of 3/8″ rick rack to coordinate with fabric (optional)
- All purpose thread to go with fabric selection
- See-through ruler
- Seam gauge
- Iron and ironing board
- Scissors or rotary cutter and mat
- Tape measures
- Straight pins
