Razzelberry Apron

This particular apron is great because it is so versatile. This pattern is the bread and butter of aprons ha! 
This is going to be my everyday apron. It is much more sensible then the other aprons. Easy on easy off. 
What is great is it is a cinch to make! If you like you can add embellishments to make it a bit more frilly like the Sparkly and Bright apron

What you will need
1/2 yard main fabric
1/4 yard for waistband
1/3 yard for ties 
1/2 yard fabric for Apron bottom
The pattern can be found under the tutorials tab at the top of the blog
Once you have printed out the pattern grab your main fabric. In order to save on cute fabric I cut 2 from the cute fabric and 2 from white fabric. I used the white fabric on the back and cute fabric on the front. Once you have cut your 4 pieces out lay them right sides together and sew around the edges but not the bottom
Once you are done tune the pieces right side out and topstitch if you like
Take your two top pieces and overlap them slightly and pin them in place 
Take the fabric you decided would be a cute waistband and cut it so that it is a little longer then the bottom of the 2 top pieces that are now pinned together. It can be as wide as you would like your waistband to be. Once you have cut it take your rectangle and pin it right sides together and pin all up the raw edge. 
Now sew up the raw edge. Once you are done topstitch what you just sewed
I decided this time to cut long strips of fabric and just hem the sides. Once you have made ties pine them right sides together at the ends of your waistband
Once you are done flip out the tie and topstitch
Now grab the fabric you decided would look good on the bottom. Hem up both sides and the bottom the do a gathering stitch across the top. Gather it up until it is the same length as the waistband
Place the fabric pieces right sides together with the raw edges of the waistband and the raw gathered edge of the apron body are together. Sew across the raw edges. Once done topstitch what you sewed and you are done!!!
Super easy right? Now if you want to add some ruffles simply slide them in between your two pieces and THEN sew around the edges. 
I will go over how to make the tiers on the apron bottom when I give the tutorial on the HMS Lollipop apron.

  4. Love it Kelly! I did the "save fabric trick" when I did all the stuff for our portraits! Great minds think alike!! And while I was doing it I totally thought of you and the lack of fun prints over there! I was like "so this is what Kelly is dealing with all the time..."

    Love and Hugs, Jess
