Get ready to dive into a world of Christmas joy and indulge in some festive moments with family and friends!
Whether it is Christmas dinner or cookies that you are making, these instructions for how to sew an apron with cross over straps will protect your cute Christmas outfits. This easy project features an embroidery design from Urban Threads which adds a sprinkle of fun machine embroidery to the apron.
1 ) Fold each strap in half lengthways with the right sides together and pin. Sew a side seam along each strap, then turn out using a safety pin and then iron flat. Change your stitch length to 3.0 and Top stitch along each edge.
2 ) Overlock the sides and bottom edge of the apron rectangle. Fold these edges in by 1cm and stitch down.
3 ) Overlock the sides of the facing. Fold these edges in by 1cm and stitch down.
4 ) Mark the centre front of the apron rectangle. Measure from the centre of your chest out to where you’d like the straps to sit, and then mark this measurement on the fabric on both sides.
5 ) On the right side of the fabric, put the straps on the marks you made in step 4, aligning the raw ends of the straps with the raw edge of the apron. Pin and then sew front straps to the apron with a 5mm seam allowance.
6 ) Cross over straps and sew to reverse side.
7 ) Lay the facing onto the apron with right sides together, sandwiching the straps between the apron and facing. Pin in place and then sew along the top edge with a 1cm seam allowance.
8 ) Open out the facing and press the seam allowance up. Understitch the seam allowance to the facing to stop it from rolling out when the apron is worn. Ensure the straps are out of the way so you don't sew over them accidentally.
9 ) Fold the facing down so that the wrong sides of the apron and the facing are together and press. With your stitch length to 3.0 along the bottom edge of the facing to secure it to the apron and enclose the raw edges, then snip the thread tails.
