How To Make An Apron
(Updated 5th January 2022)
In this guide you will learn how to make a simple apron. This is an easy-to-follow project for beginners as it only uses one rectangular piece of fabric, plus some cotton webbing to make the apron ties. If you’re looking to build confidence with sewing whilst also making something practical, an apron is a great place to start.
We've teamed up with Upcycler, Lins Drabwell, to show you how she made this apron.
Aside from being useful, aprons are also a great way of adding a bit of colour and décor to your kitchen. You can either select complimentary colours for your apron, or if your kitchen is fairly neutral in design, why not go bold and select a statement fabric to make your apron. For this apron project, we’ve used the Hereford Fabric in Blush to coordinate greens and pinks to our colour scheme. It’s 100% cotton but durable and machine washable at 30 degrees which is ideal for cooking escapades. You could even make coordinating oven gloves and tea towels and they make a thoughtful gift.
