  • This step is optional for those who like to hang their aprons on a hook. If you want to add a hanging tab, cut a one inch by three inch strip and fold the raw edges in, including the ends and sew the edges together along the open side.

  • Open the apron top out and sew the finished tab to the middle of the apron top, aligning the middle of the tab with the middle of the apron top. Do this before sewing down the apron top so that the stitching of the tab will not show from the right side of the apron.
