Hey Gang! Today we are going to make an easy apron with a fun “Give Thanks” Applique.
This is simple project that you can make for yourself or as a gift for your holiday Hostess. Alright lets get down to business with what you will need for supplies.
1 Yard Of Cotton Fabric. I used This Lotta Jansdotter Print
2 Felt Squares
1 Print Out of your “Give Thanks”
First we are going to cut up our 1 yard of fabric into these pieces:
Cut your fabric in half on the fold so you have 2 pieces that are 22″X36″
Set one aside for the main portion of your apron and cut three 6″X 36″ strips out of the other piece to be your tie.
Sew the three 6″ strips together end to end and press your seams open.
Fold strip in half length wide and press.
Open Strip up and press up edge 3/4″
Repeat on the the other edge.
Fold in half and give it one more nice press so all of your folds are crisp.
Set your tie aside, we will come back to it later.
Fuse your felt squares to your fusible facing with the paper still on one side.
Place your print out behind it and trace with a light colored washable marker.
You should have something that looks like this. Cut out all the letters. This is the most tedious part of this project but the results are so fun.
Remove the paper backs of each letter and then place on the right corner of the main apron piece.
Iron them into place so they don’t move while you are sewing them.
Stitch around each letter.
Your letters will then look like this.
Now we will finish sewing up the apron. Hem all the way around the apron leaving the top unfinished.
Then using a long stitch on your machine stitch along the unfinished top of your apron.
Pull one thread and gather the top of your skirt to desired fullness.
Press your gather into place.
Place the skirt to in the center of the tie:
Pin into place:
Stitch the tie into place folding the ends of the ties in and sewing them up so they are finished too.
Then you are all finished! Impress your family and friends by giving them an awesome apron this holiday season!
Happy Holidays everyone and Happy Sewing!
