The Sweetie Pie Apron


This was such a fun little sweetheart apron to make.  Originally, I wanted to be able to make it out of a single yard of fabric.  I fiddled and fudged with the pattern and the fabric until successs was achieved - mission accomplished!  The one drawback was, the neckties turned out a tad short.  Not a problem for me since I'm a bit short waisted...but it could be a problem for those that are not.  So, the pattern includes two different cutting layouts, just in case you want the longer ties.  Short ties = 1 yard of fabric, longer ties = 1 1/8 yards.
short ties

long ties

The apron can either be made with your standard-find-it-almost-anywhere-basic-extra-wide-double-fold-bias-tape (the black apron).  OR, you can make it fancy with some specialty pleated bias trim (the red apron - I found the trim at Hobby Lobby).  The bias tape apron was the easier of the two.

This pattern will be priced at $8, but for the first week of release (until 02/13/2012) it's $5.  It can be purchased as an  instant download here or you can buy it from my etsy shop (and wait for me to email you the pattern.)

Enter to win this apron pattern. Go to my facebook page and "like". If you're already a facebook follower (or if you don't do facebook) just leave a comment letting me know you'd like the pattern.  That's it.  The winner will be announced here and on facebook on February 16, 2012.

(If you buy the pattern on sale but end up winning the giveaway, you can pick any other apron pattern that you'd like).  Good luck!
