This post was originally part of a fabulous Gift Card Giveaway to either Jo-Ann’s or Home Depot. The giveaway is now closed.
As part of the giveaway, we were each given a $50 e-card to either Jo-Ann or Home Depot and asked to use it to create a DIY 4th of July project. Here is what I came up with!
It’s so fun to celebrate the 4th with the family – and for us that means food!! :) We usually have a big cookout and watch the fireworks from my parents patio. Pretty sweet deal.
So what goes perfect with a fun cookout? An adorable apron to wear while you’re cooking of course!
I found this wide red and white stripe in the home décor section of Jo-Ann’s – I love the weight of it! It’s a nice soft canvas and it was easy to sew up! I found a blue to coordinate for the waistband in the same section, to give it a patriotic/nautical feel.
Having matching red, white and navy shoes is completely optional. ;)
It has nice big pockets too! I love aprons with pockets – they are so comfortable plus I find that if I’m doing a marathon cooking section they’re great for tucking the end of a dishtowel into.
The pattern for this cute little apron will be part of an Apron Pattern Set that will be available soon (next week!) I will update this post when the pattern is available for purchase.
I do have some pattern corrections for those of you who downloaded the pattern. So sorry about that! They are:
Measurements for cutting out fabric:
For waistband: 2 pieces – 19” x 4”
For Ties: 4 pieces – 45” x 4” (cut ends of pieces at an angle if desired)
Interfacing: 1 piece 19” x 4”
I hope you like it!
