Instructor: Jessamy Battuello
Skill level: Beginner
Class size: Enrollment limited to 6
This class walks you through the process for making a practical unisex Makers Apron that can be used from the kitchen to the craft room and beyond! This simple pattern makes for the perfect skill-building first project, with wrap-around ties and a front pocket that can be divided in custom-sized sections. The finished apron measures 14.5” long by 39” wide and the waist ties are approximately 64” long, so the apron can work for a wide range of sizes. You'll leave the class with the perfect accessory for all your future sewing endeavors!
For reference, in the picture, Everyone is wearing the same apron — Jessamy and Edan, and Elizabeth tie it in front and Jacqui ties it in back. Jessamy's hip measurement is 37" and Jacqui's is 52".
