It’s my first Blog-iversary (Free Apron Pattern!)

And for the occasion, I have another free pattern to add to the list! The Marie Apron!

That’s my mom, Marie. And she’s wearing her brand new Marie apron that I made for her birthday. Can’t you see how happy she is? 🙂

If you would like to make the Marie Apron CLICK HERE for the pdf of the pattern and the instructions! Now, I will warn you, the pattern is on a 24″x36″ piece of paper which means that you will have to take the pdf to a print shop (like Kinkos) in order to print it. I don’t believe this costs more than a dollar or two and I’m giving you the pattern for free, so don’t complain to me that you can’t print this at home! It’s a big pattern! I have included the dimensions if you want to draw the pattern on some pattern paper at home. The curves are up to you though. 🙂

There is a lot of bias tape in this one, so you might find this tutorial helpful if you have never used bias tape before. Feel free to give me feedback to improve the instructions or the pattern – I’d love to know what everyone thinks!

Also, I hate to be repetitive, but please do not sell items made from this free pattern and do not claim it as your own design! Feel free to link back to this post if you’d like to spread the word though. Also, if you make this pattern, I’d love to see the final results! Please add photos of the final product to the flickr group here!

    Beth! I was just looking at Jason’s 365 album and saw this picture of your mom. I told Jonny how much I loved that apron and was going to ask you where to get the pattern. And then, I come to your blog and you posted the pattern! I’m so going to make this sometime this summer! 🙂 Although I have never used bias tape… so I’m going to have to use the tutorial. Thanks for the pattern.

      So glad you like it! It’s a pretty easy project to learn bias tape on and the tutorial is what taught me how to use bias tape so you should pick it up pretty easily! Let me know if you have any questions about the pattern. 🙂

      Thank you! I’m glad I finally found a use for that one yard of fabric that I impulse bought when we responded to that craigslist ad. . . 🙂 I’m trying really hard to use up the fabric in my stash because it’s taking up too much space and spilling all over my floor!

        Haha well if you ask me, that means you need to reorganize and buy more shelving, not use the fabric up! 🙂

    Thank you for the pattern. I just found your blog and have bookmarked it for a return visit. Your blog post was made on my birthday…but I’m a wee bit older than your blog. 🙂

    Thanks so much for posting this! I’m a beginner and this is the perfect first project for me.

    This is a complete newbie question…what kind of/weight of fabric would be best for making this?

      100% cotton would be best! Good luck!
