Last year, I made an apron for a gift exchange for our annual investment club’s Christmas party. The girls really liked the apron I made and the final recipient said she loves to wear it because it is not only cute, but extremely practical as she no longer has to search for a kitchen towel when she is working in her kitchen. Both of my daughters suggested that I should create a pattern for it so I could share it with others, so…
I’m pleased to introduce my new pattern, Anna’s Apron. The wonderful thing about this apron is that once you have it on, you always have a kitchen towel within your reach because it is the base of your apron.
The pattern includes 2 different versions for the waistband as well as an optional pocket pattern piece and has detailed instructions and illustrations that walk you through the apron’s construction, step by step. It is a fun and easy pattern to make.
The apron is a great gift idea and can be personalized for almost any occasion. It is the perfect solution for those hard-to-shop for people on your gift lists.
You can also make the apron using a woven cotton kitchen towel. I prefer the terry cloth towel because of the body and absorbency it provides and it is more wrinkle resistant.
What I enjoy most about this pattern is that you can easily personalize the apron and really make it meaningful to the recipient,. I have several pieces of fabric that I have collected for future aprons that will be a lot of fun to give because the theme of the fabric is relevant to the recipient. For example, I have some fabric that has a coffee theme and the resulting apron will be a gift for my favorite coffee connoisseur. The jumbo rickrack is a fun accent and perfect trim for this pattern.
If you would like a pattern, you can purchase a copy on Etsy or by replying to this blog post. It is also available locally in Boise at the Quilt Crossing. I think you will find this pattern to be a fun apron for yourself as well as for others. You’ll be amazed at how handy it is to have your kitchen towel “at hand”. I would love to see some of your finished projects and hope you will share pictures of them. I also want to thank my friend, Pat Henderson, for being the lovely model for my apron pattern.
I’m excited to share this new pattern with you and hope you will give it a try.
