WHOO HOO!!! It’s finally here… Fourteen Days of Crafting Love, I am so excited! I am also so thrilled to have such a FABULOUS group of talented bloggers participating in this fun Party.
We will all be posting together today and then after this each blogger has an assigned day where they will be sharing on there blogs a Fun and Lovely craft with you. I will be posting EVERY day so be sure to be checking back and checking out these other Fabulous blogs for the next 14 days..
Today I will be sharing with you this Diy Ruffled Apron, the BONUS is I will be giving this Apron away at the end of this Party.. How exciting is that!! And, the best thing is all you have to do is leave a comment at the end of this post.
So on the off chance you don’t win this Adorable Apron, I will go ahead and show you how to make one of your very own.
I cut 2 pieces for the bib in a rectangle shape 10×13 . On the ruffle pieces I cut those on the fold, bottom ruffle 12 inches, middle ruffle 10.5 inches and top ruffle 7.5 inches. The waist band (2 total) 2.5x 27 inches and the straps (4 total) 2.5x 76 inches long. (the straps are extra long because they crisscross in the back.
Cut out a base for your ruffles to be attached to. I cut mine 21×7 inches. You will need to finish the bottom, top and sides of your ruffle strips. You can use a serger or a zig zag stitch. Turn over your finish edges and top stitch. Ruffle the Top Edge of our ruffle strips and then attach them to your base starting from the bottom ruffle to the top.
For the bib place right sides together and stitch up the sides, turn right sides out and press. On your straps sew right sides together stitch up the sides and leave the top and bottoms open for turning right sides out. Press and top stitch. Place your straps inside the top of your bib and sew.
Take your waistband strips and place right sides together with your bib sandwiched in between. Pin in place and sew.
On the bottom part of your waist band turn the edges under about an half and inch and press.Then place your Ruffled pieces in the middle of your bottom waistband, pin and sew.
I made two little strips (you can see in the top left picture) by taking 2 inch strips and doing the same thing I did for my straps. I put them in on the ends of my waistband to act as loops for my apron straps to go through, in order for it to crisscross on the back into a bow.
And… There you have it. Your very own Ruffled Apron!
Simple as that!
