Have you seen the fun aprons made with Stampin'Up! fabric? Well, I've been seeing them for some time now, but never got around to making any until this week. Earlier in the month, during the Stampin'Up! Extravaganza sale, the fabric was marked down to a great price, so I picked out several patterns and got to work. If you have basic sewing skills, these are super easy to make and they turn out super cute. I made several aprons just like the directions said to do it, but when it came to the ties SU! just doesn't have enough wide ribbon colors to match all the fabric. The instructions say that you can get three aprons from one box of fabric (which you can), but if you want to make the ties from fabric you'll need two boxes of the same fabric. Check out Jill Olsen blog videos to see just how to make them.
Per Apron you'll need:
One Tea Towel that measures at least 18" x 28"
One Fat Quater of SU! fabric or fabric of your choice
Large Rick Rack the width of your towel plus a little (Aprox. 20")
Big Shot with Scallops #2 die
1 1/4" Striped Grosgrain ribbon (I used 28" for side tie and 18" for neck tie.
1/4" grosgrain ribbon the width of your towel plus a little (Aprox. 14")
Sewing machine, iron and thread.
