I have made literally thousands of these aprons over the years. Now I am going to teach you how to make your very own. This downloadable pdf pattern includes 31 pages of step by step instructions and over 80 visual aid pictures to help you make your very own seven pocket apron.
FEATURES - 7 useful pockets
- Two central zipper pockets with a pouch pocket behind.
- Two smaller pockets on either side.
- The apron has a long strap which can be tied around your waist, in front or behind you.
- The seams are enclosed and the pockets are lined.
- The apron is lightly padded for a soft but stable feel, to reinforce the pocket seams and to provide a soft layer between you and your apron contents.
17 3/4 inches (45 cm) x 11 1/4 inches (29 cm)
The waist strap is 84 inches from end to end. It can be tied around your waist, in front or behind you. Instructions are included if you want a longer or shorter strap.
IMPORTANT: As this apron is made from rectangles, the pattern and tutorial include dimensions for pieces to cut, there are no paper pattern pieces. Don't worry there is no guesswork. I give you detailed instructions for lining up your pieces, for a quick cut using the least amount of fabric possible. You can use a pen, ruler and scissors but this is so much easier if you have a cutting mat with inch or cm squares, a cutting ruler and a rotary cutter.
