Step 1: Getting Started

Aprons are so fun to make any time of year, especially for girls! This cute and simple pattern is a great way to recycle what you may already have on hand to make something new. The best part is there are 3 easy steps and it can be done without sewing!

If you do not have a skirt on hand you can find one at your local thrift store for a fraction of the cost of fabric and elastic- so you will save time and money on this project which is a winner in my book!

This is a perfect project for beginners or those that do not have a lot of time for sewing or maybe already have a large sewing pile!

Difficulty: Easy

Step 2: Next Step


1.Lay skirt flat and cut sides at the seams- (if there is only one seam then eyeball it for the other side)



2.Measure and cut evenly space slits on the waistband for ribbon or you can sew ribbon to the waistband. Cut ribbon to desired length (mine measured 1 yard)- remember, you will need enough length to tie around waist and a bow around the back so measure twice and cut once.

Using your ribbon - weave through the slits on the waistband and pull until even on both sides and until you achieve desired results

Step 3: Finishing Up

3.Now all you have left is to sew the sides of the apron.  You can make this a no sew apron by using seam tape for the side seams or just do quick side seam- whatever works for you. If you decide to sew the sides- do this by folding one side 1/4″ and then again 1/2″. Press with an iron. Repeat for the opposite side

There you have it a super easy, done in minutes- apron pattern!
