My First Apron

Julie, modeling the apron!

I recently finished my very first apron.  I used Simplicity pattern 2492 and fabric purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I am pleased with how it turned out, however, I did not like using the bias tape that edged the entire apron.  So for that reason, I will not be using this pattern again.  I have already bought a new pattern that I am going to try for my next apron.  It is called the Funked Out Apron No. 12 by Lila Tueller Designs.  It is very cute!

I normally wear an apron whenever I am cooking.  I currently have three that I wear:  two made for me by my sister-in-law Megan and one made by my friend Heather.  I am happy to have another apron to put into the rotation (especially since one of the aprons I have is a Christmas one!)

I'll post pictures of the next apron when I finish it.


  1. I have a pattern and fabric for an apron that I have had for at least 5 years. I have never made it. I really need to! Half-aprons do nothing to keep me clean!! A full apron like this is the way to go!

  2. I love it! What an adorable pattern. I'm always impressed with the fabric others choose. I'm horrible at putting fabric together and getting it to look good together. You did a great job! Lovely model too :-)


  3. So cute it almost makes me want to pull my machine back out and get to work. Almost : ).
