As many of you probably are - I am already thinking about Christmas presents:) I saw this Levi Apron and knew exactly who I wanted to make them for - a couple of tween friends of mine! Coupled with some cookies in a jar that my sister is making, they are going to get a stellar gift!
I did have a bit of trouble following the tutorial, however. So here are a few steps that I feel make it a bit more clear.
When I cut out my apron shape, I didn't know which end of the pant leg to cut, at first. I eventually figured out the the bottom of the pant leg becomes the top of the apron, because of the way the pant leg is shaped.
So, I took the fabric and cut it into 3 inch wide strips, by the length that the fabric comes off the roll (which is usually 40-44"). I cut a total of 5, 3" x 44" strips.
Next, I pinned the 88" long strip (the strip made of 2 pieces sewn together) along the 2 sides and the bottom, continuously (yes the fabric just changed:) Different apron being shown now). I had to fold the corners carefully.
The apron is done at this point! Really fairly easy - very rewarding - and not too big of a time commitment.
I wanted to fancy mine up a bit, so I added a couple of flowers. Here is a great tutorial for the kind I made!
My sweet model is smaller than the girls I am giving these aprons to. The aprons I made are a bit too small for an adult (but obviously too big for a toddler). They measure about 27" in length and 16-17" in width.
I love them!
