Let’s make Aprons! Here you’ll find over one hundred and seventy free apron patterns and tutorials collected from all
over the web. And so many styles to choose from! Sew full aprons, half aprons, retro & vintage aprons, smock
aprons, craft aprons, child and adult aprons, gathering aprons, bib aprons, and simple or elegant aprons. And all of
these pages show you just how pretty and fun aprons can be - both to make and to wear!

And because an apron often consists of simple shapes and is quick to make, it would make an excellent first project
for someone just learning how to sew. The beginner will be able to whip an apron up in almost no time, and be able
to have the satisfaction of a completed project. Plus an apron can be made from a medium-weight broadcloth fabric,
which is a fabric that's easy for a beginner to work with.

And just a reminder: If you’ll be making your apron from several different fabrics and you plan to launder your finished
apron (which is likely), test each of your fabrics for colorfastness. To do this, submerge each fabric individually in the
same water temperature and detergent in which you plan to wash your finished apron. If the water turns color or if
any dye comes off when you press the wet fabric between layers of a white towel, then your fabric isn’t colorfast. If
this is the case, you may want to choose different fabrics.

Sewing Quick Tips:

Tip #1: If your fabric is 100% cotton, consider preshrinking it more than once; two or three
times even because cotton fabric doesn't always shrink its maximum amount with the first

Tip #2: When purchasing fabric, remember to write down the fabric's care instructions, which
should be printed on the end of the bolt. Also note the fabric's fiber content and store this
information with the fabric.
