Quick to make..great to give as gifts!
First cut your a template. Mine is about 5 inches tall. Just make it so it looks right to you. Trial and error will help you arrive at the perfect shape!
Next cut your bias strips. I'm such a cheater I just 'eyeball' them, but they should be about 1" or a little less. A rotary cutter is great for this. This is great project for practicing with bias.
If you want to use scraps and you need to connect them here is a handy way to do it.
Attach the bias to the neckline first.
Fold over and stitch.
Here is the FUN part!
Attach your strip of bias to apron. I iron constantly and use alot of spray starch. I've found it's easier to NOT pin during this step. I do start sewing at the bottom of the apron though and sew up on either side with a very small seam allowance. Sew RIGHT SIDE OF BIAS to WRONG SIDE of apron. This will allow you to topstitch on the front which will look neater where it counts.. :)
right side..just in case you really needed to see it.
Fold, iron and pin bias strip, aligning it a bit over your seam (shown above)
Top stitch bias down..slowly and carefully.
You're almost finished!!! Simply fold over strap ends and stitch. Cross them and stitch again.
From here you can embellish the apron--add pockets, buttons, embroidery! The sky is the limit!
