Easy Pocket Apron Sewing Pattern

Every year we have a big garden.  Like super big.  Which means from spring to fall, I need a way to carry seeds, fruits and veggies and gloves and tools.  

Which makes our newest pattern for apron with pockets absolutely perfect for garden days.  It is lightweight, but has a giant pocket that can hold so much.  I had 5 paper bags full of pumpkins seeds in this apron and it was a lifesaver.

    Materials Needed

    All the fabric for this pattern was made using the Annie's Quilt Club fabrics.  They are so pretty and I love getting surprise new fabrics in the mail each month.

    Sew the Half Apron Pattern

    Step 1
    Cut a 10 inch piece of bias tape.  Place bias tape along the side edge of the apron piece.  Stitch in place.  Enclose the other side of the apron piece in another 10" of bias tape.

    Step 6
    Using pattern, cut 3 waistband pieces.  Place two pieces with right sides together and match the short edges.  Stitch together with a 1/4" seam allowance.  Add the third piece to the short side of one of the waistbands and stitch together.  

    You should now have about 90" of sewn waistband.

    Step 7
    Find the center of the waistband and match it to the center of the apron.  Take pins and use them to mark the right side of the apron and the left side of the apron.  You will not sew the waistband between these two markings.

    Step 8
    Fold the waistband in half with right sides together.  Make sure to keep the pins marking where the apron will go.  Stitch the waistband closed from the short side down the long side, stopping at the first pin marking.  Start sewing again at the other pin and continue to the opposite short side of the waistband.

    LEAVE THE CENTER OF THE WAISTBAND OPEN.  Trim the corners of the waistband.
