Introduction: How to Make a Shop Apron Without Sewing

About: Hi, we're Dara and Nash. Industrial designers, tinkers, and mayhem builders. Follow our travels.

This is a fun craft night project, with Spoonflower giving away free fat quarters for the Etsy Night of Craft, you can make your own custom designed shop apron for roughly the cost of shipping. How Awesome is that? The coupon code is: EtsyParty12. You can also make your apron from any left-over fabric laying around your sewing room. This is a great project because it requires very little time, money, or skill level, but the finished project is super cute. Since we did this as a team meeting, you will get to see lots of different group members demonstrating the various steps. Thanks guys!

You will need:

1 yard of ribbon (3 feet/1 meter)
Fat Quarter
E600 Industrial Glue or any fast acting fabric glue
Spare Fabric if you want to make extras

Step 1: Cut the Ribbon and Fabric Out

Cut out the ribbon and fabric. The ribbon should be long enough to comfortably tie around your waist without problems and the fabric should be wide enough to fit across your front. A lot of the guys liked to hold the fabric up to their bodies to measure the actual width for a custom fit.

Step 2: Lay the Fabric Out and Place the Ribbon on Top- Gluing

Gentleman....start your engines...a little bit of glue never hurt anyone.

Step 3: Customize Your Apron!

This part is the fun part! You can draw on fabric with any basic sharpie pen. So pick up that pen and start making! You can also add glitter, extra fabric, and other ideas, etc.


You have a custom apron for your craft nights!
