Childs Apron Tutorial over on the new blog

Hop on over to sewinginnomansland.com to check out the new tutorial! And there is a giveaway! Woo hoo!
Here is a little sneak preview of the post. You need to jump over to see all of it and download the pattern and enter the giveaway!

Ughh, I have been dying to get this post up. But I promise to make it up to you at the end of this post with a giveaway! This weekend we moved, yet again, and well, our friends invited us to their gorgeous cabin and when someone invites me to a cabin I drop everything and go. So, a lot of this went on:

One of the things I often received emails about is having to download page after page of patterns individually, the other is having the pattern pieces themselves be dotted lines to save on printer ink. Well I am happy to say I have fixed ONE of those things and am diligently working on the other. You can download the pattern for Evie's Apron here all in one download! Yeah it was really easy and I am so glad I have fast enough internet to make it easier for ya'll to print patterns :) Once again this pattern is loosely based on Sassy Little Sisters apron. I just feel like this version is a lot simpler and straight forward. I also love that I was able to make each apron out of two correlating fat quarters and some white fabric I had laying around. This was the only way I was able to afford making them all out of either Amy Butler , Joel Dewberry or Heather Bailey fabric :) Evie's (an exact copy up for sale in my Etsy store HERE) was made from some Heather Bailey Fresh Cut fabric that I LOVE.

Once you have printed out your pattern, taped it together and cut out your fabric as directed on the fabric, fire up your iron so it is ready when you need it. Ya'll know  me and my love of irons ha!

1. You should have 8 pieces

2. Take your two pocket pieces and lay them right sides together.

3. Stitch around outer edge leaving a small opening so you can flip it right side out. I like to leave the opening on the top where it is straight so then it is easier to sew shut.
