Materials List:
1 Yard [92 cm] Fabric (for skirt and bib)
1 Yard [92 cm] Contrast Fabric (for bib lining, waistband, waist ties, pocket and neckties)
Thread to match
**Half apron needs 3/4 yard [69 cm] of Fabric (for skirt and pocket) and 5/8 yard [57 cm] of fabric for waistband, pocket band and waist ties.
Other Supplies:
A Good Pair of Scissors and Sewing Pins
A Sewing Machine (not a serger)
A Ruler (a sewing ruler is nice, but any ruler that’s at least 12" [30 cm] in length will work fine)
A Fabric Marking Pen or Pencil (can use a regular graphite pencil in a pinch)
A “Dull Pointed” Object (anything like a crochet hook, a chopstick, a very dull pencil, etc. - This will be used to make nice points at the ends of your waist ties)
A Straight Long Skinny Object - a ½" to 3/4" [1.5 to 2 cm] wooden dowel works best, but if you don’t have a dowel you can use a long spoon handle, a thick crochet hook, or a clean broom handle for turning your ties.

For the accent fabric flower, you will need:
Fabric-These flowers are a great way to use up extra lengths fabric you may have around. However if you want to purchase fabric, you’ll only need to buy 1/12 yard [7.6 cm] or 3 inches of fabric that’s 44/45” [112/114 cm] wide.
Felt- One tiny little scrap is all you need, less than 1” x 1” [2.5 cm x 2.5 cm].
Other supplies/tools needed - A good sharp pair of scissors, a needle and thread (for hand sewing), , thread to match your fabric, a bottle of Fray Check (optional), and a brooch pin.
