Craft Apron of My Dreams

I found this craft apron pattern this past weekend when I made a quick stop off at Cabbage Rose in Ft Worth.

Before I can start all the swaps and projects I have to do, I needed a crafters toolbelt to keep everything together as I work. I waste so much time looking for scissors, the seam ripper (every project!!!), etc. Now I am ready. Plus I plan to use this for my Apronista repurposing project because I used all scraps from my favorite materials!! Here is the final product and then I will tell you some of the things I did.

Not to toot my own horn, but I am so proud of myself. I reused scrap fabric, I came up with the idea for tulle instead of Pom Poms (Yuck - sorry to anyone who loves 'em - I don't), and I just feel like my sewing skills are improving with each project. Back to the topic - sorry!!

First I had to cut and sew the pockets together. Then I added each layer of pockets and background - adding tulle in between one of the steps!

I added the waste band and straps last. The pattern also calls for a ribbon to hold your pincushion. Mine is blue. If you look at the finished project you will see it. I can't wait to use it on my projects this week!

I used all of my favorite materials and the cherry material I won in the Flirty Apron Swap drawing. I love it so much I want to sleep in it! What do you think? Am I getting better with each project???


  1. Love it!!

    I definitely need one of those aprons!!

    So, happy you are having Fun with the Fabric:D

  2. I need something like this! I spend way too much time wandering and not enough time crafting.

    I love your fabric choices!

  3. Great job on the apron! I made one kind of like this - you can see my pics and instructions on
