Free Apron Pattern and Apron Tutorial

Finished Apron Finished Apron - Santa was the only one in my house willing to model the apron. It is tough sometimes living with all boys.

This is my favorite apron style because the apron strap is adjustable and it is full coverage for maximum splatter protection. Most aprons that have a neck strap tend to fall too low on my body to do much good so this one works really well for me. Because it is adjustable, I can move the top of the apron all the way up under my neck if I need to more completely cover my clothes. There are also two pockets which are useful for tucking in a dishtowel or a kitchen utensil. Best of all, it is incredibly easy to put together. I timed myself making this one and I was done in less than two hours, and I was stopping periodically to take photos.

All you need to make this apron is a yard of pre-washed fabric and your basic sewing supplies. There are no buttons or other notions needed. The pattern is given as a set of dimensions with visual illustrations so you will need a yardstick and a temporary marking method. If you have a cutting mat and rotary cutter, this will make cutting quicker, but it is not necessary . I have created a pattern layout showing the overall dimensions of the apron components and a cutting diagram that shows how to fold the fabric and cut it. I have included a pattern for the apron pocket. All documents are .pdf format; to save the files without having to leave this page, simply right click on the hyperlink and save the link.

Cutting Instructions

Note: if you are using a rotary cutter, you can cut the fabric as you mark it. If you will be cutting with scissors, mark all of the lines first and then cut the apron pieces out. Refer to the cutting diagram as you go.
