Tulip Apron Pattern

Process:

  1. Begin by sewing the bottom of each “petal” to the top, right sides together.  This is a little tricky as you have a pretty sharp turn to make in the middle, but with a little patience, you will end up with a clean look.

2. Stitch all the petals together, right sides.  Press and trim excess fabric near seams.

3. Hem all the raw edges.  Take your time around the edge of the apron to ensure a crisp and rounded edge.

4. Mark center of tie and pin to the center of the apron.  Continue pinning on both sides until you reach the end of the apron.  Stitch.

5.  Fold the waistband on itself, right sides together and pin from the end of the apron to the rod of the ties.  Stitch and then turn right side out.  Leave the middle of the waistband (part connected to the apron) free.
