1-day-projects: apron

I made this apron for a friend who’s getting married. It’s a fairly quick project, but since it fits kind of snug it needs to be measured for the recipient. I measured me, because she’s about the same size (okay, she’s a little thinner! After her first baby, I bet it will fit perfectly!).

It’s made of two pieces, plus the straps. The bib is 18″ by 9″, the bottom is 20″ by 25″. Baste the top of the bib down to 10″, and the bottom of the bib to 15″ , then sew to apron bottom, the top of which has been basted down to 15″. Finish all the edges, sew on the straps. You can see I used an edge binding all around, instead of a rolled hem. I don’t know if it’s easier, but it’s a little prettier.
