Put your fat quarters to good use with this pretty and practical apron pattern!
Dear Sewing Enthusiast,
If you’re anything like me, you have a stash of fat quarters just waiting for the right project to come along. Well, have I got a project for you — and your main piece is already precut for you! This project is perfect for beginner and experienced sewists alike, and you’re going to love the finished project so much you’ll probably want to make more as gifts! Let the sewing begin!
One of the great joys of precuts is, well, part of the work is already done before you’ve even started. With our Rose Garden Fat Quarter Apron, all you need is two fat quarters. We’ll show you how to sew up a cute apron with just those two pieces. And, as you would expect from the best apron patterns, this one has pockets!
All the cutting is straight lines, and nothing goes to waste. That makes this one of my favorite apron patterns — no fuss, no waste, just all pretty, practical style. Pick two fat quarters that go well together; we picked a rose print and a coordinating dot print.
The key to this apron pattern is to avoid any directional prints in the fat quarter you’re going to use for the pockets and trim. Save the stripes and plaid for the main body of the pattern, or for another project.
Our Rose Garden Fat Quarter Apron tutorial will keep you focused and on track, with detailed instructions and clear pictures of each step. Not sure exactly how to cut the pieces? No problem! We include a cutting diagram and a photo of the cut pieces all laid out. Then we show you how to sew them all together.
Apron patterns don’t have to be complicated to make beautiful finished pieces. You can start this project in the morning and use it when it comes time to prepare dinner. Imagine the satisfaction of putting on a brand new apron that you sewed yourself!
Our Rose Garden Fat Quarter Apron makes the most of your fat quarters stash, and once you’ve made one apron, you’ll want to make more. I have a stack of fat quarters in my stash, and I think I’ll start making some aprons to have on hand as gifts. You may be inspired to do the same — or maybe you’ll just want to make a few for yourself!
