Why do I make my custom aprons?
I don’t know about you, but when I’m making something with my bare hands, there’s guaranteed to be a mess around me (and possibly on us as well). So, I whip up a custom apron so at least I could keep my clothes clean, even if I can’t keep the tables and the floors mess-free. Hence, I decided to make my own custom aprons to save me from getting messy and dirty while doing gardening or cooking.
How do I create my sewing custom aprons clothing?
However, it’s also really cute! I feel like it would make a sweet (and economical) gift for a friend or family member that likes to cook, craft, bake, etc. Let’s croll down for the full tutorial.Do I need a personalized apron pattern to make my own?
Nope! I’ll show you how to make one very simple, cute apron without a pattern. It’s very easy with just a few measurements.
Materials For Custom Aprons Textile arts
• one yard of thick(ish) fabric
• thread the matches fabric
• pencil or tailor’s chalk
• cloth tape measure
• sewing machine
What type of fabric to use for a handmade apron?
The best fabric for one funny apron is the fabric you already have, if possible! Because using materials you already have will reduce waste and save money.
But whether you purchase fabric or use whatever you already have, when it comes to material, a medium to heavyweight fabric is ideal! Especially since those crafting custom aprons is a single layer. And thicker fabrics will mean paints, liquids, etc would be less likely to go through to your clothing underneath.
Generally, you’ll want about a yard of fabric to create some sewing custom aprons crafts like this one. However, depending on your size and/or if you want something roomier, you might want a little more.
How to Make a Chef Custom Aprons Clothing in 10 Minutes
1st: Cut fabric pieces.
Precisely cut a piece of fabric down to size – 26 inches high by 20 inches wide. Then fold the fabric up like a hot dog (wrong side up). You’ll also want three long lines of fabric at this time.
Since I used a shower curtain that already owned finished edges, I cut those edges off and used those for those strips because they were already finished and ready to go.
You’ll need double strips that are 36 inches each (you could go shorter than this, we just like having a long strap). And then you’ll need one strip for a neck that is 18 inches long. Each strip is a half-inch widen, but you can do any width you like here.
2nd: Fold and measure your manufacture custom aprons crafts
Then with the top of the fold to your left, calculate over from the fold 4 inches and make a small mark (this will bring you a total of 8 inches when unfolded for the top of that funny apron).
3rd: Measure and create a curved line.
Then measure from an opposite side (see photo) 18 inches high from the bottom and create a small mark. Then freehand a curved line from the mark you did in step 2 to the mark you made in step 3.
Again, look at the photo for reference. This curved line is the area on the custom aprons decorative arts under your arm.
4th: Cut the fabric on that line.
Cut on that line which was made in step 3, through both layers of fabric.
5th: Hem with a sewing machine.
Hem with a sewing machine, to create a completed edge around your kitchen apron. Being sure to cut little notches at the curved parts (arm area) of the funny custom apron to help it lay or fold better for hemming.
6th: Add the long straps
Next, that’s time to add the long straps. For the back ties, find the very ending of the arm area, where the bottom of the curved line meets that vertical fabric line.
Then attach one of the long 36 inch straps at the back of the fabric. For added strength, make a small box with your sewing machine, over the strap. And then an X through that.
Repeat this step with the other 36-inch strap on the other side of the custom apron texture arts.
7th: Add the shorter strap.
Then, at the top in the neckline, add the shorter strap the same way you added some back ties in step 6. Snip any stray string to clean everything up when you’re ready to craft (or cook).
