Anyway- I wanted to girl it up, so that's what happened today. It was super easy. All you'll need are...
A CD/roll of duct tape/other circular stencil
Sewing machine OR fray check (or both, if you're me).
(1) Stencil it. For the top of the apron, I placed the plate on the back side and traced the edge, then repeated on the second half. For the bottom, I used a roll of duct tape all across.
(2) Cut it. Cut out the edges, it's best if you cut off all of the sharpie markings. Wish I had done that.
(3) Sew it. If you're using a sewing machine, run the newly cut edges through the machine using a STRAIGHT STITCH. I'm so bummed. I started using a zigzag without paying attention and only now is the thought occurring to me that I simply could have used a seam ripper and started again. Oh well. Use a straight stitch. If you sew, remember that the fabric will fray up until the point of the stitch. Keep that in mind depending on how much of a fray you'd like.
(4) Check it. If you want to skip sewing or don't want your apron to fray, simply apply Fray Check to the edges. I actually sewed it AND used fray check.
That's all from me today, short and sweet! All the best, and as always, thanks for reading!
