One of my belly dance friends works with an elderly lady and asked me did I know anyone who could make her a blue, half apron with a pocket on the front with an owl on? - quite specific I thought!
Yes, I know someone....I said....
Cut a strip of fabric 2m long and 22cm wide, you will need to join two 1m lengths. Fold it over, sew seam, turn to right side out and press.
Cut out two rectangles for the apron about 62cm by 50cm sew them together and then turn right side out and press.
Do the same with smaller rectangles for the pocket
about 26cm x 26cm
I added an owl to the pocket using free hand machine applique on the sewing machine.
Top stitch the pocket to the apron. Top stitch round the apron, then stitch the strap to the waistband. You don't need to do everything double but it just feels good and keeps the seams inside.
As described I thought.
Now take it off before you start doing your own jobs! I nearly went to pick raspberries in it.
Happy sewing and gardening. Jo xx
