What You'll Need
  • Blue, white, light yellow and dark yellow felt
  • Scissors
  • Pins
  • Glue
  • Yellow and white ribbons
  • Marker pen
How To Make It
  1. Lay the dark yellow felt over the blue felt and pin together.

  2. Cut the basic shape of your apron to approximately 60cm long and 24cm wide for the top part, graduating to 38cm wide for the skirt.

  3. Cut two pieces each of white and yellow ribbon to 70cm long. Glue one end of each piece of white ribbon to one end of the yellow ribbons.

  4. Slot the glued ends of the ribbons into the top of your apron between the felt: white matching the blue side and yellow matching the dark yellow side.

  5. Remove the pins and glue both sides of the apron together, sealing the ribbon straps in as you do so.

  6. Print and cut out the reversible apron templates.

  7. Place the scalloped waist apron and collar templates over a piece of yellow felt, and the basic waist apron and collar templates over a piece of white felt

  8. Trace around the collar templates and cut out.
    Add an extra 12cm to the length of the waist apron templates and cut out.

  9. Glue the scalloped yellow collar and waist apron to the dark yellow side of the apron, and the white collar and waist apron to the blue side.

  10. Cut a strip of white felt 5cm wide, and 85cm long. Do the same with the yellow felt. These will be the waist ties on your apron.

  11. Glue the yellow waist tie to the centre of the dark yellow side of the apron. Do the same with the white waist tie on the other side. Make sure the white and yellow waist ties align, and glue them together where they extend past the apron.

  12. When all glue is dry, your apron is ready.
