Very cute apron pattern. Easy to assemble pattern pieces. Great instructions. Wish it was available in larger sizes though.

Amount of fabric needed will depend on apron style:
*Basic Apron (no Bottom Band or Ruffle)
5/6 yard (76 cm) of Main Fabric
2/3 yard (61 cm) of Accent Fabric

*Apron with Bottom Band Option
¾ yard (67 cm) of Main Fabric
5/6 yard (76 cm) of Accent Fabric

*Apron with Bottom Ruffle Option
¾ yard (67 cm) of Main Fabric
5/6 yard (76 cm) of Accent Fabric

Suitable fabric includes 44/45" wide cotton or poly/cotton prints or solids

Other Supplies:
Thread to Match
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.
