The pattern is available in one size.

Cook was sewn from a Christmas cotton fabric in this pattern.

Required material:

We recommend a cotton fabric.

Sizes 34-50 Outer fabric 1.30 m 140cm wide

Cutting:

Cut the pattern pieces from your outer fabric. Lay the fabric right side up. Lay the selvedges parallel to the middle so that you can place the front, front pocket and band in the fold. The pattern pieces should all lie face up. Always align the thread arrow in the same direction on all pieces and parallel to the selvedge of the fabric. Transfer all the clippings from the pattern through a 3mm long incision with scissors or chalk. Clip the seam allowance in the fabric fold because this is always a center. Markings define positions of dart ends, pocket positions, and much more. Transfer these either with chalk or pins.

What you need from fabric:

  • 1x front part in the break
  • 1x pocket at the front in the break
  • 2x band in break
  • 2x receipt tunnels in opposite directions

Sewing instructions:

To sew this apron you will need a sewing machine.

In addition to the description, the colorful lines in the pictures show you where a seam needs to be sewn or something needs to be glued.
When sewing, pay attention to the seam allowance included in the pattern. Seam allowances that are not specifically marked are 1cm wide!
Have fun sewing! 

Double press the side seams and hem. Pay attention to the seam allowances in the pattern. You also iron the upper fold of the front part twice in and around, according to the pattern.

Iron the lower cut edge of the receipts once...

... the openings of the kangaroo pocket double in and around and the remaining seam allowances of the pocket once. Pay attention to the seam allowances in the cut and use the pocket template to help you iron it.

Then stitch the pocket openings 0.5 cm wide.

Your bag is prepared and you can stitch it onto the front part, just around the edge. Pay attention to the markings in the pattern, which define the position of your bag.

Then stitch the side seams and hems at 1 cm, as well as the upper fold in the front part, close to the edge.

Now come to preparing the documents, which function as a tunnel. The short routes are taken twice

... and stitched 0.5 cm wide.

Then place the facings right sides together on the front piece and sew them together at 1cm. On curves, seam allowances are cut with scissors, making them easier to iron flat.

The seam allowances are then stitched flat as far as you can get them. This method not only makes the final ironing out easier, but also means that the receipt, if it is not stitched, automatically folds inwards and does not roll out. Only the facing is stitched close to the edge on the seam allowances. The stitching line can then only be seen from the left inside of the fabric, but not from the right side.

Now stitch your twisted and ironed facing onto the front piece with just the edge.

Now let's move on to preparing the tape. This is cut twice and must be sewn together in the center back, right sides together.

Place the band, right sides together, in a fold and sew it together at 1cm all the way around. Don't forget to leave a 2-3cm hole in the middle for turning.

Iron the seam allowances apart. Use a stick to help you do this.

Also close the short ends...

... fold it over to the left and secure its position with an auxiliary seam.

You push the ribbon through the hole in the middle, which you then sew up.

Pull your ribbon through the tunnel of the apron.
