The secret is out – I’m planning a fun week all about Pockets! August 1-7th, right here at ExpectMoore!
Each Sunday before August 1st (starting today), I’ll be presenting a Pocket-related tutorial as part of the Countdown to Pocket Week!
Here is the first in the series… a double-sided Apron with “Secret” Comfort Ruffles!
The ruffles in the ties help the top to stretch, so the apron stays comfortable whether you’re sitting, standing, or constantly getting up and sitting down!
I used 3 coordinating fabrics – a fun flowered print for one side, a simple stripe for the other, and a bright yellow for the pockets and ties. All of them came out of my “stash,” I’m pretty confident that the yellow stripe was passed on to me from my mother:
Sew around all four edges, leaving a hole for turning. Clip corners and turn. Top stitch around all four edges.
You’re done! Try on your apron, and fill the pockets with all the things you want close at hand, or that you don’t want little hands to play with.
Stop by next Sunday for another pocket project, as we count down the days to Pocket Week!
If you can’t wait until August for more pocket-related inspiration, check out these great pocket posts from elsewhere on the ‘net.
Also, I’m still looking for a couple guest bloggers who want to share a pocket project, and a couple more pocket-related giveaway sponsors. If you’re interested, e-mail me at carolina (at) carolinamoore (dot) com.
