Fun and easy apron

Standard

march 21 011

I belong to Threadbias, a very fun place for sewists to play together. I’m hosting an apron swap (https://www.threadbias.com/groups/progressive-swap/forum_threads/april-apron-swap#11) and this is the project for the swap. Here’s the link for the apron: http://www.bfranklincrafts.com/CraftIdeas/CraftIdeas-Apron.html. Of course I had to add some embroidery! The rooster is a free file I got from Threado. They send out a free design everyday .

Tissue holders- in the hoop project free!

Standard

Bless you! Tissue covers
Fabric- 4 pcs. 4.5”x6.25”
Stabilizer- tear away
Hoop- at least 5”x7”
Press 2 of the rectangles the long way so that you have 2 pcs., 2.25”x6.25”.

1. Stitch first line then stop. Lay 1 of the folded pieces so that fold is on the left stitch line. Use tape at the top and bottom to keep in place.

2. Stitch the 2nd line. Place 2nd folded piece so that raw edge lines up with stitched line. Tape.

3. Stitch. This 3rd line is an outline of the entire piece.
4. Then the “Bless you!” will stitch. Stop.

5. Take the 2 remaining pieces of fabric and place them wrong sides together. Lay them down over the outline stitch. Stitch.

6. This last line is the inside outline. You are done stitching.
Remove piece from hoop and stabilizer. Trim between the 2 sewn lines, about an 1/8th of an inch from the inside line and closer at corners.

On the stabilizer side, pull apart the opening and turn right side out, poking out the corners.

Press and TA DA!!
