Why spend lots of money on an apron when you can make an equally cute one in your own home? With just two yards of fabric and a sewing machine, you can make this beautiful high- waisted apron. This apron is perfect for teenage girls who are just getting into cooking and baking, college students, newlyweds or frankly any woman at all. It makes a lovely affordable gift as well. 

Step 1: Supply List

Step 2A: cutting the background pieces 
Line up the background fabric with right sides together so that you have a rectangle that is about 19" x 33" and cut three inches off the end so that you have a rectangle that is 19" x 33". 
   
Step 2B: cutting the straps 
With right sides together, cut out two 36" x 9" pieces. 

Step 2C: cutting the bottom accent piece and waistband
With right sides together, cut  two additional  33" x 9 pieces. Then take one of these pieces and fold down the center and using the pocket pattern (see images) cut a curve for the center of the waistband. 

Step 2D: cutting the pocket 
 With remaining accent fabric, cut two pocket pieces using pocket pattern.
