Last year, Jona gave a tutorial on her blog for "An Apron In An Hour". Here's one I made for a friend of mine who is having a birthday on Saturday. This is such an easy apron to whip up...It doesn't take much fabric at all and I used up some of my scraps. Go check out Jona's Blog - it's full of wonderful stuff!

And of course, when preparing dinner in her new apron, she must have a drop of her favourite wine!

I also made a matching bag for a nice bottle of wine. This was another easy project.

I cut a rectangle about 38cm (top/bottom) by about 46cm. Made an 8cm hem on one of the shorter sides (for top of bag). Fold in half lengthways. For the ties, (use 1 length of ribbon about 65cm or make matching ties like I did) fold the ribbon in half and place folded edge of ribbon into the bag's seam allowance at the side, about 8cm from finished top of bag. Sew down side and bottom to form the bag. Square off the bottom of the bag. How easy!


  1. Cute apron! And always a nice feeling to use up some scraps :)
