What a great basic utility apron for anyone to make even a beginner. It is very fast and so easy and the tutorial is great. There is nothing like being able to have control on the fabric and how long or short you want it and the pocket sizes too and what you want o use it for school,garden or cooking. These will also be great for a pre-K or kindergarten class when using paints or doing crafts.

Really easy to make and instructions to follow. I made this with my children using some heavier duty fabrics with a gardening theme and they are going to give it as a fathers day present with some new hand gardening tools. It is easy to make changes to the design as we decided to add in an extra layer so that we could have more pockets.

This utility-look apron is perfect for craft shows or garage sales where you want your hands free but need pockets for money, stickers and small items. I made two of contrasting colors so each apron was a flip-flop of the other. The picture of the finished apron and the dimensions were most helpful in deciphering the steps of the tutorial.
