Does anyone know of a straight forward easy to follow one? I would love to join in the swap but want to make sure I could make one!

I bought a pattern book for mine but I have some great ones I've found since my apron obsession started I'll link to them all when I get on my laptop :sewing: :widesmile:

Justme123 made this one for me for the DIY swap and said it was fairly easy. It's lovely too :-)

Oh maybe I will throw myself into this one too if I can find a tutorial. I need motivation to start using my sewing machine and this could be the push I need :)

I hope I can save you all some time as I've spent hours and hours searching the web for apron tutorials. These are the ones that I've found that I've loved the most and bothered to bookemark (luckily I'm organised and even have an apron section under craft->sewing in my bookmarks :giggle: :giggle: ). I hope this is of use to you all and you can find some inspiration!

I'm pretty sure this is the pattern I used to make Jenna's (highlandmum)one I did for a craft swap last year.

Ahhh no it was this one I used in the end - I loved the simplicity of it to set of the owl fabric I'd used.

The ruffles on this make my heart go pitter patter :love: :love:

I love the pleats on this one and the inbuilt hotpads! What a fab idea!

This on is quite new and wish it had been around early as it was pretty much what I was searching for when I made my first apron!

I've just thought we need to add a survey question about if people prefer 1/2 or full. I know I'm totally gross and messy in the kitchen and have to have a full one or they are useless. Such a shame as I just love the look of some of those 1/2 ones :cry: ! I even bought a set from Aldi that had a teatowel, gorgeous cafe apron and a mit. I ended up cutting up the teatowel and turning into the top of the apron!!!

Sorry meant to say go for it - aprons are a wonderful start project :widesmile:

I've found it is a real mix, some patterns do and some don't. They feel lovely and professional if they are lined but obviously take a lot more material!
