Shipping Weight: 0.28 lbs

Quite possible the best use for one square yard of fabric you'll ever find, this excellent apron is cut on the bias and is designed to be made from a 36" square of woven fabric. You'll love the drape, the fact that it fits just about everybody (really, truly -- we tried a sample on women weighing up to 250 pounds, and it worked for everyone; our model, to the left, is 6'2" and loved it), the optional, reversible version (calling for two square yards of fabric, of course!), ... it's just so much fun.

Unlike many aprons that don't really cover you well, this one manages to get an impressive amount of protection even for the larger-busted among us (no more spaghetti-sauce splatters in exactly the WRONG place, thank goodness!). A child-sized apron pattern is also included, designed for most kids aged 7-12 but easily folded up at the waist for smaller children. So cute, and the perfect gift for a favorite little person. It's a perfect present for adults too: use it to wrap a cookbook, some ingredients, a certificate for cooking classes (either at home or professional), a heritage picture of Mom/Grandma/Great-Grandmother in the kitchen ...

This is not a sized pattern -- it's designed to use exactly one square yard of fabric (be careful when laying out the pieces), and is quick and easy to sew up. The child's size requires 7/8 yard of fabric, or 1 3/4 yard for the reversible version. Because of the bias cut, some vertical and horizontal print designs are not appropriate; we made our test apron from Rich Green Gingham Stripe, which ended up diagonal. We'd planned that, and were pleased, but might not have been as happy had it been a surprise!

You can finish the edges with a simple hem (serger-rolled, hand, or machine), homemade bias trim (made from 1/4-1/3 yard of contrast fabric), or 7.5 yards of purchased bias trim. We used the Triple-fold bias tape on ours.
