How to Make an Apron Resource Page

A page full of ideas of aprons to craft. If you love aprons and sewing, you will be inspired, for sure!

A PAGE FULL OF RESOURCES TO HELP YOU MAKE AN APRON


This page is packed with resources for anyone wanting to make an apron. Whether you want to make one for yourself or for someone else, you've come to the right spot. It will point you in the direction of some wonderful resources that are available online for making your very own aprons.

I have included a few Youtube videos that show you how to make aprons, including one from Angel Fleece Aprons and one from the Missouri Star Quilt Company. I have also included links to pages with great apron how-tos an interesting apron-making book from Amazon.

The aprons shown above are from a vintage 1950s Simplicity pattern, number 4492. I love the turquoise blue one and the big pockets! You can find it on eBay by clicking here.

I hope this page inspires you to make an apron.

HOW TO CREATE A RETRO APRON BY CINDY TAYLOR OATES

Cindy Taylor Oates has written a few retro-themed pattern books in this series that offers well written instructions and excellent illustrations. The patterns need to be traced because they are printed on two-sided paper but doing so is, according to reviewers, worth the effort. The author includes ways to make the apron look retro and ways to make it look contemporary so no matter your style, the aprons in this book can be adopted to suit.

A FEW APRON FACTS


Previous polls on this page when it appeared elsewhere online showed that 40 percent of the people who visited owned an apron and that 43 percent were looking for a new project or an apron inspiration. Only 19 percent of the visitors said that they ALWAYS don an apron when they're in the kitchen but 30 percent of them said that they should but only do so when cooking a particularly messy item. That is where I fit, in that last 30 percent. How about you? Do you usually wear an apron? Are you looking to craft a new one?

See you in the kitchen.
Hopefully, with your apron on!
Brenda

  2. What a fabulous collection of apron patterns, instruction video, & resources! I love aprons and just looking down the list of options here makes me want to pull out my sewing machine and make one. I especially like the upcycled denim apron. I haven't made one using old jeans before. Very cool! Thanks for going to the trouble to create such an awesome "make your own apron" resource!

  3. What a fun resource page. Takes me back to my childhood days of visiting my grandmother and great-grandmother who always seemed to have an apron on over their dresses.

    I haven't worn an apron in years, until this summer. I am participating weekly in a local Farmers Market with a craft table for my crochet and discovered it is inconvenient to lug a purse around while sitting or standing outside in the park by my table. A craft vendor's apron with wide deep pockets turned out to be the perfect substitute for a purse for money, cell phone and order pad.

    Love this page of resources for aprons of all kinds. Thanks, Brenda.

  6. Aren't these fun! I absolutely love the look of retro aprons - actually I own a few. I remember learning the basics of sewing in school and we made aprons and smocks, lol! What a fun project for anyone in the family.

  7. What a beautiful collection of resources for making aprons!This is a fantastic resource for anyone who would like to make their own apron. I like the look of retro aprons. I never used to wear an apron but I have done this past year since I got my red and black check slightly retro looking apron. I love wearing it and it is useful for a somewhat messy cook lol! It would be fun to make your own and personalise it.
