First of all, if you aren't a follower of Prudent Baby, you must go check out their blog right now! Theses ladies have such great projects for babies and toddlers. Secondly, they have a great tutorial for how to make an apron out of a Fat Quarter. They're also having a Fat Quarter Apron Contest (entries due by November 10th) where you can put all of your creative juices to good use to win an AMAZING pack of 22 Anna Maria Horner Innocent Crush Fat Quarters!
I was in need of a birthday gift for a couple of my girlfriends and I decided a Fat Quarter Apron would be the perfect gift!
So off to the fabric store I went. The great thing about a Fat Quarter Apron is that it only uses a fat quarter! So I splurged on some fabrics that otherwise would've been out of my price range, but were only $2.50 for a fat quarter!
Here's what I came up with...
I used coordinating double fold bias tape around the perimeter of my apron and double fold quilt binding for the ties (I simply sewed it closed and it was perfect!).
So all in all, each apron cost about $7 to make! And they are super cute! I didn't fancy mine up too much, but there are lots of cool things you could do to them using decorative trim, adding pockets, appliques, the possibilities are endless! And just in time for Christmas!
Now I just have to make one for myself!
Partying here this week:
