Reversible Fat Quarter Apron

While my sister was in town over the holidays, we decided to make ourselves some aprons. We went to one of my favorite quilt shops to find the perfect fat quarter for our aprons.

I had made fat quarter aprons for my sister-in-law and friend using Prudent Baby's tutorial and had planned to make our aprons in the same manner. But my sister had the great idea to make ours reversible.

We both LOVE how they turned out!

I used 2 fat quarters from the same line to make my apron, but my sister chose 2 completely different fabrics to make hers.

Since my fabric coordinated, I used the opposite fabric on the waistband for a fun, added detail.

Here's the other side...

These were so easy and so much fun to make...and since they're reversible, you get 2 aprons in 1! I might have to go make myself a few more. ☺ They make great gifts, too!

P.S. If you haven't already, please go view and rate my space on the HGTV website. I'm trying to get on their new show, HGTV'd. Thanks!
