It's time fot Vintage Things Thursday...that time to see all the wonderful older things that we've collected. So comon' everyone..and head on over to
coloradolady for all the participants. Come and join the fun..
Source: A page from an older magazine..not sure of the age as this was a loose sheet in a box with other patterns I bought. They were all in a huge box..and I just had to have the old patterns. It is somewhat like the pink potholder apron..but I would really like to make one with this pattern to see how it comes out..
Choose fabrics of checkered gingham or pretty prints..(something pleasing to yourself), and cut 4 pieces according to the measurements shown.
Cut 2 pieces of terry cloth 9 x 18". These will line the pockets..they are actually potholders.
Make the pleats as shown, then pin 2 of the apron pieces together wrong side to wrong side, smoothing out and pinning close to edges. With the pocket lining in place between the two pieces of print, bind entire apron with pretty bias tape. Turn up pocket portion 8" and sew sides together. Now make the second side of apron.
Overlap apron pieces to within 2" of edges and stitch on a belt and strings. You do not sew the crossover portion at all, as the 2 parts of the apron must be free when you use them as potholders.
