This is the start of my xmas sewing.........yes I know, swearing again, but when I feel the need to sew for 15 work friends, I have to start early.

A couple of years back, I decided to make aprons. This idea was quickly scuttled as the pattern I chose while beautiful, took nearly 8 metres of bias binding, and doing just two nearly did my head in.

Fast forward to this year, and I have found another pattern. This one is not only simpler, it uses less binding, less fabric, and takes less time.

Its the Magic Pattern - The Slip-over Apron. A bias cut apron that takes just a yard of fabric plus binding.
The Slip-over Apron

The folds at the back waist were a bit tricky to figure out, I scooped the neckline to make a rounded rather than square neckline, and I rounded the corners at the back. I used the binding fabric for the waist ties, primarily so they could be long enough to tie to the front, because I know some people prefer that. For the real ones, I think I won't be lazy, and I will actually cut the binding on the bias. In hindsight, it would have been better to make the body of the apron in the check, and bind with the dots, but oh well, you get that. This is after all a muslin, and not the gifts. I am going to pair the aprons with a matching set of potholders.





I already have a beautiful piece of paris fabric for the first one, so I can start straight away ....... AFTER I finish the quilt.

I like it. Are you adding pockets? I like my aprons to have pockets.
Going to be nice gifts...

This is a really cute pattern.

I do think pockets would be a nice addition and useful as well.

What do you think about embroidering initials or name on it?

I have to say, it is a cute apron, but for me, I also vote for pockets. At least two or one large one divided up. I love making aprons, easy, cute and useful.
