Gardening Apron

I can’t wait for Spring! I made this apron in the Fall and was only able to use it once so far. The pockets are deep enough to hold your gardening tools, seeds/bulbs, labels, pruners–anything! This Sewing 101: Gardening Apron tutorial from Design Sponge was easy to follow but I did come across an error. The pattern says a 1/2 yard of coordinating fabric for the pocket, but then directs to cut a 20″ x 20″ piece. A 1/2 yard is only 18″ so you will come up short on the pocket height. I didn’t notice this until I started cutting, but an FYI if you decide to use this pattern. You’ll see from my apron that the pocket height is still sufficient on my shorter version 😉 IMG_2722 I used outdoor fabric, which is a heavier cotton weight, and found a perfect floral print in red and brown. The main body is a matching brick red solid. For the apron tie, I went with the longer version and the pattern suggests two 4″ strips pieced together. Use the same piecing method you would use on quilt binding to join the 4″ strips.
