I made another flour sack ruffle apron for my friend :-)
Her daughter is getting married and this is going to be her wedding shower gift. I think the fabric colors are so cute! (you can find the fabric at Hobby Lobby) I switched how I did the ruffle at the top a little bit ( every time I make one of these aprons they turn out just a little bit different. That is how things go when you don't use a pattern :-)
People have asked for instructions for this apron and it is hard because really there is not any solid instructions. I just made it up as I went, but I do have some basic ideas that I can share, but I warn you this will most likely be the worst tutorial to understand so just know you have been warned :-)
I bought a flour sack towel from the dollar store I like to get a flour sack towel because all the edges are already hemmed which saves me a few steps ( I am all about saving steps!), but I do cut the corners off one end of the towel and I hem the new rough edges by pressing under a quarter inch twice and then hem it down until the corners look like this.
Then you need a quarter yard each of two different coordinating fabrics. I cut each quarter yard of fabric into 6 inch wide strips.
Then you press in the sides of each strip of fabric a quarter inch and hem around all sides.
Sew big stitches on one long side and lightly gather into a ruffle.
