Utility apron


The season of craft fairs is upon us!!

So, this utility apron tutorial from Sugar Bee Crafts was perfect for a little last minute sewing for this weekend's craft fair.

Here's my version.

I made it from fabrics that I had in my scrap basket. Absolutely everything was from my stash, which only made it better! I didn't buy these fabrics together but I think they go well together.

Mandy's tutorial calls for lining but I ran out of sheeting so I used some curtain lining. Urm, oops, it was blackout lining so the apron is SUPER stiff. Surely that's a good thing considering how much money I'll be taking at the Christmas fairs?

 It has two large back pockets and 3 medium sized front pockets and 1 small pen pocket along the front.

In the tutorial Mandy used fabric to create her own bias fold tape but I am totally afraid of bias tape and making it fills me with dread. I used white cotton twill tape instead which I had in my stash which made this apron super fast.

All in all it was really simple, if you can sew a straight line and iron then you can sew this. Thanks Mandy for a great tutorial!
