We love the retro look of tough-yet-soft ticking. It can stand up to those kitchen stains and spills. Our half apron design is beginner-friendly and fun to sew. Great for cooking your own family favorites or make one as gift.
Our kitchen towel Ruffle Bunnies are ready to hop-to-it and help with your dish drying. Download our free appliqué templates to make a one towel or the full set of three. As you know, bunnies have many friends and relations, so they like to have lots of company.
An apron in flannel makes for some cozy cookin’! The ties adjust with grommets and knots to fit a variety of sizes. And rick rack around the bib and along the waistband is the perfect finishing touch. We made ours with pre-cuts.
It’s a utilitarian, get-down-to-business style that works well for women, men, even kids. You’ll love the tough riveted canvas, zippered pocket, and a cool slide buckle belt that cinches in place at waist or hip level.
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, decorative stitches can turn an ordinary project into something special. We started with a basic bib and skirt design in natural colors of cotton duck, then added multiple rows of stitching.
This earns our Sewing Survival Emblem as a beginner-friendly project that takes just a couple yards of fabric. If a full-coverage apron feels like too much, switch to a lightweight half apron for casual cooking and serving.
Start with an off-the-shelf hot pad and mitt set – we found ours for $2 – add some simple fabric and trim details and voila, style on a shoestring and a great gift idea. It’s also an excellent ScrapBusters project.
A heart-shaped bib, pretty ruffles rimming the edges, darts and pleats, all in a yummy combo of color and motif. This is one fun, flirty apron. And we make no apologies for its all-out “girly-girlness.” Shown in two fabric combos.
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.
What happens when you combine the wearable feature of an apron with the wipe-able feature of a towel? Our Wear ’n’ Wipe Kitchen Towel Scarf! Patchwork fabric on the top loops around your neck and at the ends are absorbent towels.
Pretty patchwork with pie-shaped wedges spins into a full circle. There are free downloadable patterns for the front wedges and the back circle. A Janome Circular Sewing Attachment gave us those perfect concentric quilting circles.
A 9-part pattern is included to create the beautiful bottom curve, angled bodice, and cute pockets. For our special finishing details, we added just the right touch of decorative stitching and buttons to secure the ties.
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.
This is the perfect kitchen gift set. There’s an adorable half apron with two matching hot pads. Bundle up the trio with a set of your favorite recipes and a few kitchen utensils to create a handmade-from-the-heart gift basket.
Pull out some pretty fabrics from your scrap stash and blend them together into a happy mix of pattern and color. Each mitt uses up to four different fabrics. They’d make a great gift for wedding shower season!
The Janome Circular Sewing Attachment, Aurifil Thread, and multiple rows of decorative stitching work together to create a “round-tastic” set of hot pads. Add a special recipe or unique seasoning for an excellent gourmet gift.
Add a little sparkle with metallic cottons. This is a fast and fun project that would be great for someone new to sewing. The waistband and ties are surprisingly easy to make, but give the apron a very professional look.
This happy pair of hot pads is all about the beauty of a perfect line. We selected a wide stripe for the front, then highlighted it with parallel rows of bright decorative stitching. Wrap up several as a unique host/hostess gift.
