10 Apron Patterns & Tutorials

Making your own apron is a terrific way to learn basic sewing skills.

Making your own apron is a terrific way to learn basic sewing skills. If you choose a simple pattern you’ll be able to quickly finish and enjoy. I know that is a great motivator for me. I have too many unfinished projects waiting in the wings and having something I can cut, stitch and wear after one afternoon’s work makes me happy. If you choose wisely, it’s an inexpensive project as well. You might find a scrap of fabric, a dish towel or pillow case, maybe an old sheet that would be perfect! I’ve collected a few ideas, patterns and tutorials to get you started.

  1. Loving your apron posts!! I’m very inspired to make some new ones for myself and my kiddos. After reading this list of tutorials today I found myself entertaining thoughts of sneaking out of a birthday party this evening that is next-door to a fabric store! ๐Ÿ™‚ No one would miss me, right…..? I suppose I better just keep dreaming, getting ideas and then drag my little ones to a fabric store along with me! Maybe if they get to pick out a fun fabric they will be more patient.

    • I’m so glad you are enjoying the series, Lacey ๐Ÿ™‚ were you able to make to the birthday party AND the fabric store? My kids LOVE shopping with me for fabric, even the boys. They always find things to inspire new projects. Be sure to check out the bargain bin or remnants, it’s like a treasure hunt!

      • I didn’t make it in to the fabric store, it will have to wait for another day! My boys are usually pretty great shoppers, even at fabric and craft stores. Though my husband has some childhood “trauma” from hours and hours in fabric shops so I try to not drag him in! ha ha I bet I could find some great remnants for aprons for my little ones.

        • I’m sure you’ll have a fun trip whenever you do get the chance, Lacey. Ha Ha you are a wise wife, not dragging your hubby to shop for fabric! I’d love to hear about the aprons when you get them finished.

  2. These are great! Aprons were the first thing I learned to sew. I love making denim aprons out of old blue jeans. Am pinning this great collection to my sewing board.

  3. Great share! love these patterns with tutes! I will have to sneak in making one for Kristina ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for sharing with us at Snickerdoodle Sunday!

    • thanks, Millie ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m glad they are helpful – Kristina will love it! thanks for hosting your terrific linky party each Sunday.

  4. I got this post from Millie at 2 Crochet Hooks. I usually drill, screw and nail things together but I need a tool apron. Your tutorials are going to help me tremendously! Thank you!
