When we moved to the country a few years ago, one of the first differences we noticed was the birds. In the city, there wasn't much in the way of bird diversity. You have pigeons, starlings and crows - not much else. But outside of tow, we're surrounded by a variety of feathered friends singing,
You are a Maker! You create beautiful things with your own two hands. The medium in which you work may be different: from flour and salt to flowers and soil to floral print fabric and seams; but your dedication to expressing yourself is the same. Our Maker’s Apron is designed to hold whichever tools you

This apron is a Sew4Home design original, complete with a downloadable pattern that allows you to cut the main front and back of the apron as a single piece, which is what makes it reversible.

It’s wedding season, and this beauty made the Featured list as an excellent bridal party gift idea: matching aprons in the wedding colors! Our design includes so many pretty details, from the pleated bib to the cute diagonal flap pockets – each held in place with an accent button.

An apron in flannel makes for some cozy cookin'! We created our original sample from fat quarters, which is certainly still an option – either in flannel or crisp cotton. But, since flannel can be a bit more difficult to find in pre-cut bundles, our supply list below also specifies standard yardage cuts. The apron's ties
If you're a regular Sew4Home visitor, you know we love aprons. And, we know you love aprons.

If cooking makes you happy, you definitely need this happy little apron. There are three tiers of ruffles in a shorter, sassier style plus an extra flounce across the bodice. An easy-to-assemble pattern is included.

Like whipped cream on a plain piece of pie or a marshmallow dropped in a mug of hot cocoa, decorative stitches can turn an ordinary project into something special. We started with a basic bib and skirt design in two natural colors of cotton duck, then added multiple lines of 9mm decorative stitching. The result:
I think more things in life should be reversible. Having a string of bad luck? Flip it over, and win the lottery. Say something stupid to your best friend? Turn it inside out, and it never happened. Wake up to gray and rainy day for your family picnic? Reverse it to blue skies and sunshine.

It’s time to plunge your hands into fresh dirt! Our Gardening Apron can help with the tough outdoor tasks. The design features a unique split-skirt that allows you to squat, bend, sit or stand without stretching, pulling or binding.

A heart-shaped bib, pretty ruffles rimming the edges, darts and pleats, all in the yummy combo of candy pink and orange sherbet. This, my friends, is one fun, flirty apron. And we make no apologies for the all-out "girly-girlness" of it. We originally used fabric from the Tangier Ikat collection is by Dena Fishbein of Dena Designs

Pretty points on the bib and skirt give this signature S4H apron its name, but we also think it sparkles like a diamond thanks to all the beautiful details. There’s a free pattern download to help create perfect angles.

I’ve always loved overalls. When my kids were small, they were my rough-and-tumble choice for play clothes. But, they’re a personal favorite as well because they have such a comfy, loose fit. We often look to clothing items as initial inspiration for our apron projects, and knowing that Dritz® had a great set of Overall
If you want a truly hardworking apron, it’s hard to beat oilcloth. It’s durable, easy to clean (great when kids are involved), and the bold designs and bright colors are fun for any occasion  – many with a retro feel. As we roll into Spring, you should be able to spot great selections of oilcloth
This hardworking denim cook’s apron is full of clever surprises. The most striking is its cool lace-up front, featuring bold Dritz® eyelets woven through with a tough boot lace. But there’s also a hanging pocket that moves the way you move, and a bright pop of color on the lining. We used Dritz Eyelet and

This unique apron pulls together three embellishment techniques: embroidery, decorative stitching, and quilting. We also added form-flattering pleats underneath the waistband and darts in the lower bodice.

While working on this gorgeous apron, I admit to humming that old nursery rhyme under my breath, “Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Sailor….” We absolutely love the vintage tailoring motifs that run through the Dapper collection by Tim Holtz for FreeSpirit Fabrics. We took the theme and ran with it, designing an apron with subtle hints of

Careful fussy cutting and renaissance details give this apron its unique style. Pattern downloads are offered for the bodice pieces as well as the pretty oval pocket. Originally done in the Elizabeth collection by Tula Pink.

What if you could create an apron from just five fat quarters where there would be virtually no wasted fabric? The scraps from this garden party apron could fit in a garden party teacup.

Ombre is a French word for shading or graduating. In fashion, it refers to the graduation of color in a garment, such as when a fabric is very dark at one end and gradually lightens. With the multitude of tones to choose from within today's quilting cotton solids, we were able to achieve a beautiful

A number of colors and textures come together in this pretty apron, but each item is balanced – so they can all shine rather than one thing hogging center stage. Both the neck and waist ties are fully adjustable.

This apron has a unique empire waist and lovely details that make it pretty enough to wear outside the kitchen: piping, gentle gathering across the skirt, an eye-catching oval pocket, and an optional fabric flower. We added a safety-pin to the back of our flower so it could be worn at strap level, at the
Bold blocks of color define this classic cook's apron. It's a great project to take advantage of a fabric collection with larger motifs. If you're planning a dining extravaganza anytime soon, you should know it's a proven fact that a festive apron will make the day go more smoothly (we are not obligated to tell
A full-coverage apron is a true vintage classic. The longer skirt and over-the-head bib are serious about keeping you clean top to bottom. Our version is completely reversible — even the ties are double-sided. We originally used the very pretty kitty fabric from the Meow or Never collection by Erin Michael for Moda Fabrics. It's
This cute panel-style apron (with a bonus matching hot pad) is a wonderful project to play with a bold print and improve your fussy cutting skills.
